I can get 600mhz with 2.15v. What is your current voltage at? You can bump it up to about 2.3/4 if you need to.

Lol umm, DDR means Double Data Rate. It says 600mhz there.

600mhz * 2 = 1200mhz. Your actually running it at 1200mhz and thats why your running into instability issues.

600FSB = 1200MHz RAM speed. If you only have DDR2-1066, you might want to bump the voltage a little before taking it an extra 133MHz over stock.

Lol, did you last four posters not even read what he wrote? He said it's at 2.2v, and he's tried higher with no different results. Obviously bumping the voltage up doesn't help.

It sounds like a bad stick of ram, since others seem to be able to hit 1200mhz easily with 2.2v. You could try them individually and see if one or the other of them will do 600mhz. Or RMA them both. Just my thoughts.

I did read it, I meant like, hes trying to pull 1200mhz which is past the stock speed so really he can't RMA them can he.
