When I set my RAM to 9-9-9-20 like ocz's site tells me to for 1333 my system becomes unstable. GIGABYTE UDR3 board with 3 sticks of 2gb ocz1333, intel i7 920.
What else do i need to do?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Toms' hardware forum.

I think that is a very high CL for a 1333MHz RAM, set the timings to 7-7-7-20 and 1.65V. If your RAM needs more that 1.65V, RMA an get another RAM with max 1.65V.

Yes, I had the voltage set to 1.64, there is no selection for 1.65. Why would ocz's recommended settings be to high?

The default is at 7-7-7-16

I did set in BIOS. But there's no spot to pick 1.64v and at 7-7-7-20 i'm still only getting 1066.
