i was running it at 1066mhz but i found out through trail and error that it was causing the text on ie explorer to flash with faint black lines?? but iv set the memory back to default and it and its much better...
Your link may say it's DDR2-1066 but CPUZ says it's DDR2-800. True DDR2-1066 that conforms to the JEDEC standard runs at 1.8v, not 2.1v, plus it would show up on the CPUZ table as DDR2-1066. What you appear to have is DDR2-800 that's being marketed as DDR2-1066. The only way to get it to run at that speed would be to manually configure the BIOS/RAM settings.
jam........i think we are on different tracks. ill start again
my ram OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Gold Edition 4GB Dual Channel........2x2GB...link on my first post.. i was running it at 1066mhz from when i built the rig...6/7 months. CL 5-6-6-18 2.1 Volts......which is the advised setting from OCZ. but i am now gone back to running it at 800mhz because of the above problem. iv gone from 1066 to 800mhz lots of time to test it...but everytime i go to 1066 i get the flicker.
