    According to this: http://www.computer-specifications.com/specifications/MicrostarInt-P55MSD40MotherboardDDR31066MHz-Specs.html, your board can use up to 16 gb of ram, but it may run at 1066 if the board is oem (hp, compaq, etc) with no ram adjustments in the bios.
  4. it was bought online i built the computer. its 1600 ram so if i adjust it in bios it should run at 1600?

  6. Yes. If your bios has a manual setting for ram, you should find some higher settings than 1066.
