    Phenoms and 4 DIMMs 1066mhz?

    Is it true that if you populate all 4 RAM slots with a phenom that you cant run 1066 speeds?

    If so then how come im doing it with my rig?

    I believe Phenom I's don't officially support it. If you can do it, then good for you!

    I dont think the X4's support it but the X3's have been known to be solid with a good PSU, board and cooling I dont think I can do with my 9550 I have just ordered 1 Kingston Hyper X 4GB PC8500 kit I might risk it and buy another 1.

    But I doubt I will need beyond 4GB I'll be running Windows 7 RC1 64bit when it arrive as it would be a waste of money using XP now.
