Hello, my motherboard is giabyte G41mt-d3v
The info in specification says this:

1333 (O.C.)/1066/800 MHz

The problem is that i cant find 1066 mhz memory in any store only 1333mhz.
Will 1333mhz work on this motherboard?

It might give you some fits.

I am working with someone else on a similar issue. Their board said 1600 (O.C.) on it and they put in 1600 RAM. It crashed every 4 hrs or so till he manually dialed the settings back to 1333. Then it started working stable.

If you get the RAM you are considering, you may have to play around with BIOS settings in the same way in order to get stable operations, either downclocking the RAM or upclocking the motherboard/processor if they are both capable of 1333 (which they may not be).

- Edit - should have 1066 RAM that will work. I would stick with Crucial or Kingston.
