    Definitely try your 1066 RAM now. Maybe do a complete CMOS clear and load optimized default with the RAM installed first to make sure you have a completely clean start.

    Cool guys thanks for the posts :) So when you say do a complete cmos clear does that mean Q-Flash the BIOS? As I have never done that before (I assume you guys have done it a bunch before and its safe :p) ; And will my computer run just as stable as it is now if I do that? And final question, would I have to re-install windows if I do that?

    thanx for all the possitive help guys, you rock :D

    No need to re-flash. That won't do any harm but the CMOS can be cleared just by connencting the two pins near the case button pins. It's outside the plastic surround of the others, marked CLR_CMOS. Touch the two pins together for 20-30 seconds. If you find it easier, use a jumper off the back of an old HDD or CD ROM etc, iff not carefully use a metal object, eg a screw driver.

    Make a note of all custom settings and you can restore the ones applying to the CPU when you've installed the 1066 RAM. It should be stable purely on Optimized defaults though. There are never any guarantees, remember, but you should be fine, the RAM is known to be good in P45 UD3 boards.

    cool, so ill try that, I assume the computer needs to be off, and then when I turn it on I just go to bios and load optimized defaults and then can load into windows ? cause I dont have to re-install windows after clearing cmos right?

    thanx again bro :)

    Yep, make sure the power is off before shorting the CLR_CMOS pins.

    No Windows re-install is necessary as there's no hardware changes been done that Windows really cares about. It's virtually oblivious to any changes in RAM, be it capacity, speed or a combo of the two. The same can almost be said for a CPU change, where a single re-start is all that's needed to for example change from a dual core to a quad. About the only hardware change where I'd do a repair install in the interests of stability would be a motherboard change.

    Ok guys, its been awhile but today I finally decided to try my 2x2 GB 1066 ram(right now using 2x1 GB 800 ram and stable). So I turned the computer off, installed the 2 1066 modules and then used a screwdriver to touch the 'clr cmos' pins for about 10 seconds, then plugged the PSU in and turned on my computer everything looked fine at post with 1 beep and it looked like it was starting windows but it didnt, it just flashed a quick BSOD ,which I had no time to read cause it was on for like 1 second, then started to reboot into a loop and would keep doing this. So I tried to press the DEL key to enter the BIOS and it said "preparing to enter bios" and it just froze...did this every time I tried it.

    So now I have re-installed the 2x1 GB of 800 ram and did the clr cmos again, then turned computer on and went to bios just fine, loaded optimized defaults and then put all my settings back to what they where with this 800 ram and my computer runs fine.

    So... I dont know what is going on with my 2 sticks of 1066 ram and why it would boot loop and not even let me into bios and just froze

    Works great with this 2 gigs of 800 ram though, thanx in advance, any help would be much appreciated guys ^^

    Have you ran memtest86+ on the 1066 modules at 800 yet?

    Have not tried to run the 1066 mudules at 800 yet. Guess Ill load optimized defaults with my current 800 ram, then install the 1066 ram and hope I can load windows or at least get into bios to check to make sure its running at 800, although the MB is optimized for 800 memory and I shouldnt have to change anything gskill said. I should just be able to plug and play if I run it at 800?

    Set memory mulriplier to 2.40B, Performance enhance standard, and XMP disabled.
    If the two memory sticks won't boot try one at a time.
    For dual channel you may need to play with the MCH Core, either 1.2-1.26v or 1.05-0.95v. Usually it's more but sometimes less.
    If they pass memtest then you can try and work on the 1066 settings.
