4gb 1066 ddr2 + asus p5b = not working

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I bought 2x 2GB DDR2 1066mhz Team extreem for my Asus P5.
I had DDR2 800mhz before, but the stick's become faulty ect.

My computer thinks it's DDR2 800mhz, but that's not my problem, I've researched this and I know why its doing it.

My problem is: the bios will only go up a maximum memory voltage of 2.1 V, this memory stick are meant to have between 2.2 to 2.3 volts to run at 1066mhz.
Is there anyways I can bypass 2.1 volts on my motherboard???

My spec's as below:

Asus P5B (Non-Deluxe)
E8400
4GB 1066MHz Team Group

There's not a way to do that. My suggestion would be to run it as fast as possible at 2.1v...even if you have to loosen timings a little.
