ok i know what your problem is.
DDR2-*** is actually ***/2mhz
DDR2-533 is actually 266mhz
DDR2-666 is actually 333mhz
DDR2-800 is actually 400mhz
DDR2-1066 is actually 533mhz
i really don't know why they set up the numbers like that but yeah...the number after DDR2- is actually double what the speed in mhz is. so no matter what if you're trying to do it at 500mhz or DDR-500 it will never work regardless because no mobos will support less than DDR2-533 and your ram will never be able to go anywhere near that high.
i'm almost positive that's the problem. hope that helps.
