Default my ddr2 1066 ram was fail ;(

only a day after installing my new patriot viper ddr2 1066 ram it gave me the BSOD "not less than, not equal to" error.
set it manually (almost spelled that manulually) to run @ 1066 5-5-5-15 and 2.1v just like the spec say to run it.

gah, this gets me angry for a hot minute.

just like many ppl before me have said, it runs fine @ ddr2 800 specs.

i was able to run 3dmark06 with the same cpu/gpu speeds as my ocz ddr2 ram score, and the difference was like +15 for the 1066.
nothing noticeable at all really.

so after i unlazy myself i guess ill be yanking these sticks back out and slapping back in my ocz's.

but before i do this, (because i didnt read anyones posts about this problem)
is there a fix? or is it not worth my time since the performance between the 2 are miniskewl (how you spell that one?) and i still have my ocz sticks ready for action.
