    yes i opened a thread week back and i ended up rma my ram, well its comming tomarrow, few questions...

    as you can tell i have p5k deluxe and by default the ram runs at 800mhz so i have to go to bios and setup 1067 in settings..

    is that causing problems? this is my second rma
    i know Crucial Ballistix have bad faults..n stuff dont need to hear that it has bad chips n etc manufactor problems.. etc i know these allready

    as long as you set the voltage and timings up manually you should be fine.

    If these sticks are 1066MHz then set it to a divider that will give you 1066Mhz and manually set the voltage at 2.2V. If you get errors then get rid of those damn sticks. I just went through 2 sets of these exact sticks and I want nothing more to do with them.

    BTW, going down to DDR2-800 when the sticks are rated for 1066MHz is not playing it safe, it is merely compromising. If the product is so inferior that it cannot operate at its default specs, then you should not compromise but rather replace it with something better. Who cares about looks, it is performance which counts.

    -Dram timing control - manual
    -Change the timings to 5-5-5-15
    -Leave sub-timings on auto for now
    -Dram voltage - manually put 2.2V

    Anywhere in the 2.1-2.2v range should work. If you can run them less than 2.2v that is advisable, but if you don't feel like messing w/ it much I'd just set it to 2.15v and leave it.

    The problem you were having before is that you had them at default which is only 1.8v...way too low.
