    Ok, so I set everything, and was able to get right into windows with no problems. I ran prime95 for about 5 minutes before it BSOD. I set things back to default and it ran fine. So me thinks those settings didn't work out too well. Not sure if that means the memory overheated or what not.

    There were ranges to try, did you try them all? If not try the following.
    Code:
    Performance Enhance ------------------- : [Standard]
    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [3.20B]
    DRAM Timing Selectable ---------------- : [Manual]
    
    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time -------- ?? ---------- : [5]
    tRCD  ------------------- ?? ---------- : [5]
    tRP --------------------- ?? ---------- : [5]
    tRAS  ------------------- ?? ---------- : [15]
    
    Channel A
    Static tRead Value --------------------- : [7]
    
    Channel A
    Static tRead Value --------------------- : [7]
    
    
    MCH Core ---------------- 1.100V ------- : [1.24v]
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.800V ------- : [2.22v]
    Have you flashed the F9 BIOS?

    I did flash to F9. I tried changing the ranges as well, no dice. I will try these settings though ( I never kept the static tRead Value at 7 ). I will try tonight and let you know what happens!

    For me Static tRead is good at 5 with 1066/5-5-5-15 or 800/4-4-4-12, being on auto it probably was set higher so should not be a problem.
    Altho in the data sheet it says 2.2v the web page list 2.2-2.3v, so maybe you can try more DRAM Voltage.

    Could be that one of the sticks can't handle 1066, or there's a problem with one of the slots.
    Run Memtest86+ first, if there are errors, try individual stick in slot 1, then in slot 3 if both fail. Then slots 2 & 4 if both fail on slots 1 & 3.

    Ok, so I tried these settings, ram memtest and prime95 and got no errors! Played some BC2 for over an hour and it ran smooth, with no problems! So this is looking good. ( quick question, I was thinking of adding another 4gigs to the system, with the same exact RAM to bump me up to 8 gigs. Will I need to change these settings when I add more ram? )

    8GB will require a bit more MCH Core and DRAM Voltage.
    You may not be able to run 8GB at 1066, or have to loosen the timings.

    Try to set Driving Strength 1066 on both channels, and lower Static TRead Value to 6 and then 5 if possible.
    To compare performance differences you can use MaxxMEM² - PreView or any other memory benchmarking software.
