OCZ 2GB PC2 8500 not being recognised

I have bought two 1GB memory modules from OCZ they came as a pair so they are identical but when I boot my PC up they for some reason are displayed as PC2 5300. The motherboard I have does support PC2 8500 1066mhz RAM and in the bios it says the speed of the RAM can go to 1066 but when I boot it, its not having it, I have windows 7 professional 64bit too. Not sure what else to do, can someone try to help please!

Motherboard: Asus M3N-HD/HDMI
Memory: OCZ PC2 8500 1066mhz
OS: Windows 7 professional 64bit

  1. Welcome Newcomer. The 1066 is an overclock setting. If you haven't configured your RAM to run at 1066, then chances are that your mobo is still set to [Auto], in which case the default speed is automatically selected.

    Check your motherboard manual for the BIOS configurations.
