  1. Hi.

    The mobo that u have only support 800MHz or 1066MHz RAM even with the correct times in the BIOS the system will not run at 1333MHZ and could be unstable.
  2. will these settings give me better performance at 1066mhz speed?
  3. Those are good timings and maybe u won't see any difference between 1066 and 1333 with that configuration.
