Your board supports DDR2 800 so you very likely got a bad stick. I have never heard of Simmtronics but you may want to get a refund. You can also try a different RAM slot.

Yes I said your board supports DDR2 800. That means it's probably a bad stick. It might help if you can get something name brand as well. Corsair, GSkill, Crucial, Kingston, Samsung ect.

What is the listed voltage for the stick that does not work? DDR2 can be from 1.8v to 2.1v. If it was going to work it probably would have worked at 667 though.
