I have purchased a ASRock P45TS motherboard and 4 Gig of G.Skill DDR2-1066 memory.. I try to install my Vista and get all kinds of errors before the install ever starts. After much trial and error I turn down the frequency of my ram to 800 and everything starts working. The motherboard has jumpers that i have set to set the FSB to 1333 and I still cannot run my memory at full speed. Anyone have any advice to get my system running at full speed?

Is the memory running at the correct voltage?

Thanks for the reply. It was set to auto so i set it to the voltage for the ram and that helped but it created a unstable system. i got BSOD often. Once i switched it back to auto and put the ram at 800mhz no more BSOD. Are there other specific setting i could set along with the voltage that will make my system stable and run the ram at 1066?

Thanks for the help

I have the same hardware.
ASRock P45TS + G.Skill 4GB 1066MHz
Problem is that memtest is running ok but i have BSOD very often.
I will try it on 800MHz, maybe it will help me too.
Any suggestions?

I have the exact same setup. My system seems to be stable, although I can't get Ubuntu 64 bit to see above 4GB ram. Any ideas?

If you know something about linux you can try to compile your kernel or just try other distro. For example Debian Lenny.
