Default CORSAIR XMS2 2GB 1066 Issue

I'm having difficulty getting this to run @ 1066 on my Asus P5K SE. I have it currently set to 1000 @ 2.2v with static read control disabled. The bio setting faster than 1000 is 1067, but my computer won't boot @ that setting with 2.2v.

How can I can get this to run @ 1066?

Download memtest from www.memtest.org and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

Try these settings in your BIOS.

Thank you for your effort, but it didn't work, my PC wouldn't boot...

But FYI on the following things:

1. For the DRAM Frequency, my bios has a setting of 1067, not 1066...if that matters.

2. For the two settings of:

CPU Spread Spectrum: Enabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Enabled

They both only have the option of Auto or Disabled, so I chose Auto.

3. I could not find the following settings in my bios:

FSB Termination Voltage
North Bridge Voltage
North Bridge Voltage Reference
South Bridge Voltage


I don't know if any of those setting matter, but those are the few things which differ from your instructions.

CPU Spread Spectrum is fine at Auto if you are not overclocking. 1066 is a rounded off 1067 so don't worry on that account. You do need to increase the Northbridge/MCH voltages to help gain stability with the high end DRAM.
