Unless someone convince me otherwise, i keep believeing the memory is working at 6400, not 8500
It's about a Gigabyte UD3(rev.1.0) latest bios version (F9) and a 2x2GB sticks Corsair Dominator 1066Mhz PC2 8500.
I tried several things including changing the settings from auto to manual configs either in the timing and the voltage.
Here I attach several screenshots from Easytune6, CPU-Z and the bios.
Hope somebody gives me a hint?? (at the moment I loaded Optimized defaults, which is almost what you see in the bios screenshots).

want to add that the bios as well as the memtest state that the memory runs at 533 Mhz (533x2=1066Mhz??) but that is supposed to mean PC2 8500, but either Easytune as CPU-Z states PC2 6400.
Voltage is at 2.1 at the moment, and the timing is set manually 5,5,5,15 Command Rate=2.
Is the memory working alright? I have some about 2 crashes a-day and i started with the memory.
