    If one more test with 2.0V on the RAM (perfectly safe) and 1.44V MCH Core fails, and trying driving strengths above 800 (try them all with the higher voltages) has no effect, then yes, I'd give up on getting them stable.

    thanks bigwillie, I'm really hesitant to give another dime to GSKILL.

    their tech forums show lots of issue with these 1066s as well.

    i'm thinking corsair's match 4 stick set (8gb), or maybe splurge for 2x4GB.

    more frustrated than anything else.

    Obviousely your ram is not of top quality which you may want to use for 7GB configuration.
    Still there are a few questions I don't remember if you have answered.
    Have you tested all modules and slots?
    Have you tried and managed to get a stable 4GB configuration?
    Have you managed stable 4GB configuration with both pair of kits?
    Have you managed stable 4GB in both channels?

    If any of the above fail there si no point trying to get 8GB working.

    I notice you seem unwilling to try running them at 667MHz using the 2.00B divider?
    Sometimes a pair of pairs will not work together at rated speed may function at the next lower speed. You don't actually lose a lot in performance, and IMO have little to lose in trying it if nothing else works.
