According to this: http://www.computer-specifications.com/specifications/M..., 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.

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