I sent in the one bad stick I had, so I had 3Gb left.

They said they needed another stick so they could send me a matched pair, so I sent that in and was left with only 2Gb of DDR2-1066. I had 2x2Gb DDR2-800 laying around and decided to throw that in as well and it seems to run fine at 942Mhz, so I can run both sets in there for 6Gb total without losing any clock speed.

Whenever they get around to sending me a replacement pair I'll have an extra 2Gb for another system.

I'm just surprised that this G.Skill memory can run at 5-5-5-20 at 1.9v (its rated speed) overclocked by 142Mhz.
