my OCZ Platinum PC2-8500 rams can't do 1066MHz stably... i have set to run at 2.1V and is still not working... maybe i should try 2.2V and hope the voltage won't damage the rams.

The rams I use weren't on the Asus's QVL...
I think I have the same RAM ocman, and I may have a solution to this problem. If you haven't already, download the program called MemSet.

http://www.tweakers.fr/memset.html

I was able to get mine running over 1066 when I dialed in 5-5-5-18-71-4-6-4-4. The problem was the board was not getting the advanced timings correct. It may work at 5-5-5-15, with 71-4-6-4-4, as MemSet indicates, but the OCZ website says they need 5-5-5-18. It's a little tricky to figure out exactly what timings to change since there are three sets of number in the Bios, just find tRFC, tRRD, tWR, tWTR, and tRTP (71-4-6-4-4). Again if you have done this just disregard, it is what I had to do though.
