I don't think that the AM2+ boards will run even 1066 ram at 1066 without Overclocking it. I know mine came out of the box running 800.

And wait is it just me or is there no motherboard even listed there? Which motherboard are you going with?

yeah i didnt list it because i was seeing what you guys said....

yeah ive been reading the reviews that they come stock 800.... so i just up the voltage to what they say then change the memory frequency to 1066 and it should work??
