The motherboard only supports 4 GB of DDR2 533. You can probably use DDR2 800 but it will run at the slower DDR2 533 speed.

I looked at all the BIOS versions and none of them say they added support for DDR2 800. Not sure where you saw that.

Enhance Memory Compatibility just means making the board work with more brands. It does not mean making you board support faster memory. As I said above DDR2 800 will probably work with your board but only at the lower DDR2 533 speed.
