hi all,
newbie to the forum, and new to building PC's, as you'll soon realize:

I've put together a new computer, with a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P and 4 sticks of G.Skill 1066 memory (8 GB total). After a bunch of blue screens and freezes, and inconclusive errors using memtest86+, I've come to learn that I have a mismatch of mobo and memory. But is all lost? I've seen references to increasing the voltage, but not sure how, or if it's wise....I would greatly appreciate some tips on my options (preferably ones that don't include scrapping what I've got:)

Try running your memory modules at 800MHz, 1.9V and 4-4-4-12 timings. That motherboard runs great with DDR2-800 memory modules.

@GhislainG

thanks for the tip--if I load "optomized defaults," then make those 3 changes, am I good to go? or are there other modifications that must accompany?

That's all you need to do. Loading Optimized Defaults will change other settings as well.

Mine has been running for more than one year with G.Skill PI Black DDR2-800 at 1.9V and 4-4-4-12 timings for a year without issues.
