Does it work properly when using DDR2-533 modules only? What happens if you only install the DDR2-800 modules? Since you motherboard doesn't officially support DDR2-800, they probably won't work.

P.S. Don't use all caps as that is considered as yelling.

I Used To Have An MSI 945 Board Too(Same, Just Manufacturer Diferent)..
Yes,You Can Use 800 Mhz Ram Without Any Probs(I Used It For 1 Year)! But You Can Use Only Ram With Same Speeds Together Because Otherwise it will cause incompatibillity issues!

So You Can Use Either The 2 800 Mhz Ram Together Or The 2 677 Mhz Ram Together,
Not Both Of Them!

So Please Do Not Continue Using Them Together, Coz You Might As Well End Up Frying Your RAM.

You Can Buy Another 2 800Mhz Ram After Selling The 677 Ones... But Seriously, DDR2 is becoming outdated, and buying more of it isnt advisable! 2 GB Is Plenty For Most Games!

This is not true. It's true only when you have a motherboard that supports both DDR and DDR2.

What's true of the MSI doesn't always apply to all motherboards based on the same chipset.
