    hi guys
    i have geted this ddr and i have problems
    i dont know why but ddr just dont wanna work on 1066 LOL
    we have tested it on Gigabyte x38 and Amd 770, abit & my asus mbo p35, x38
    and we had same problem
    ddr2 modules just dont wanna work at 1066Mhz speed on any voltage
    all mother boards set it up on 800Mhz and when we try to set it up at 1066 system just hangs on :boohoo:
    it dont wanna boot
    what do you guys say on Buffalo 1066Mhz ddr moduls ?

    If its DDR1066 it should run at the rated speed especially at the default voltage rating :think:

    Some of these modules might only work on certain chipsets. Check with the manufacturer if they are tested to work on which board. If not, ask for a replacement.

    Actually, there's no official JEDEC spec on DDR2-1066. Hence, all 1066 MHz DDR2 memory modules are not certified for use on any DDR2 motherboard, unless specifically tested and certified to work on certain motherboards.

    You have to check with the motherboard manufacturer if they actually tested the Buffalo 1066 MHz DDR2 memory and certified it would work with the motherboard. Otherwise, it's really a matter of luck. :(
