Hi pple , I'm getting some new memory but i don't know whether it is clocked at the speed i want it, i want 1066 mhz (pc2-8500) but in the specs list it says pc2-6400 and 800 mhz. this is probs just a mistake but if not then I want 1066mhz memory, so could someone tell me how to get that by raising the cpu-nb multiplier? i would prefer if you just told me rather than pointed me at a guide.... i may have more questions than the guide can answer


tnx

what timings and voltages are you trying to use for 1066? From what I see on that site, they are rated 800MHz @ 5-4-4-15 2.1V

For those sticks , you might have luck booting at 5-5-5-15 2.1V , but i would say 6-6-6-xx 2.1V

You can try to oc It to 1066. Some memory OC's well some doesn't. Ive never tried to oc that specific memory you may want to Google for that specific ram and ocing..... The memory itself is rated at 800mhz. if you want to For Sure get 1066 then get memory rated at 1066.. The memory you are looking at Will Have to be OC'ed to get to 1066. OC'ing it will also rely on your Motherboard.

I've OCd my memory from 800MHz to 1066 with no problems. I just changed timings, from 4-4-4-12 to 5-5-5-12 and I have to changed my voltages from 2.1v to 2.2v and they work perfect for me. If Your memory will not work at 1066MHz try to incerase voltages for them, I think 2.2v will be safe.
