I have tried increasing the voltage.

Increasing the voltage is good, but are you running it at what it's specified for?

 

Ive up the voltage i havent touched the timings i left them all on auto but it should run stock 1333mhz

have i just purchased crappy ram i paid about $115 for 2gb ???

I wanted to go faster but for the extra cash the performance gain sucked ass

 

what reason would it have gone to 1066mhz when i first installed it.???

 

so should i go through the timings and tweak? why cant i get 1333mhz with the timings on auto??

Run CPUz and see what the SPD data says.

 

Good modules will have 2 or 3 sets of speeds/timings.

 

You might have more luck if you set the timings manually in the BIOS.

 

Or, you can leave them slack and use MemSet within Windows to alter them.

Jeez, overclocking RAM and timings in BIOS for my setup = failcat ...

 

The only way I can really adjust the timings with my RAM overclocked is with memSet.

 

I think the RAM is fine, it might be the motherboard instead though (possible solution directed towards deuce_23 and myself :P). Well that is the punt I am taking because if anything the RAM seems to be fine in my opinion.

 

Would it be silly of me to ask if you have a spare set of DDR3 RAM on you or another DDR3 motherboard to test this :P
