1066 DDR2 runs at 800MHz out of the box

25 February, 2009 (06:26) | Mindless Blather

I have a friend complaining about ram that is rated to run at 1066 out of the box on a motherboard that supports 1066 out of the box running at only 800 when put together. You have to manually set the timing in the bios.

I’m not sure if I’m on the manufacturers side or not. I think the only people running out buying 1066 ram that I know are people who understand heat management inside a case. If my grandma had some put in, her computer might cook because it is buried under so much stuff. Who knows if geek squad or some shop out there might put better ram in peoples computers so they can charge more. Then normal user cooks their MB. Any thoughts?
