All the memory above 1066 in the memory support list:
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/MemorySupport/mb_me...
says: "(downgrade to DDR3 1066)", so, yes, it will likely work, but you'll have to hope the SPD has been set up for 1066 (and it should be!); otherwise, you will need to 'hand tweak' it to work...
