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:)
other components: E8500 3.16 Ghz Pentium C2D

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