Hey just got gskill ddr2 1066, but cant get them to run at 1066. I changes the voltage to 2.1 and set it to 555 15 but only went from 400 to 533
here is what it says in cpuz
what else do i need to change? i have a phenom x3 and mobo supports 1066. its a biostar a770
DDR2 ratings refer to memory clock. CPU-Z figures are based on memory frequency which is half the memory clock.
If the factory voltage recommendations say 2.0 - 2.1 volts, I would run it at 2.1 volts even if the memory seems to run OK at 2.0 volts. For me, the extra stability is worth the small heat and power penalty.
