Oh, is that how it works? I wasn't looking at the DRAM frequency as much as the max bandwidth value, but I don't really know what I'm doing. I did not mess with the voltages or timings at all; I just upped the frequency to 1066 in the bios.

Well, you need to run it at the specifications set by the manufacturer. You will need to up the voltage to 2.100 V and change the subtimings to 5-5-5-15

okay. it looks as though the timings are correct already, or am i missing something?

I haven't changed that yet, but I will. I'm just making sure that is the only thing I need to do in the BIOS

Give it a try. You're not going to get much, if any performances increases from 800 to 1066 unless you're overclocking.
