Also, I didn't find the XMT option in the BIOS. The Manual said it was only there for RAM that supports it and looks like mine doesn't so, it's a manual voltage overclock. I'm not going to risk it.

Also this picture :

It dropped along with my new build. This is my old build's inside... super messy but there is just no room for cable managment at all. I cleaned it up and well, it will be archived.
There are lots of You Tube vids on applying thermal paste, but it is important to get it right.
See if you can get them to let you watch them put it on, once you see the correct thickness, it's pretty easy.

Just checked your RAM and it looks like it doesn't have X.M.P.
Check the SPD tab in CPUZ, it will tell you the different timings and voltages the RAM is spec'ed at.

The SPD setting in your BIOS should run it at 1333 MHz, if that's what the RAM says on it, then it's not overclocking to run it at that speed.
If it's running good at 1066 MHz, and your happy then leave it there.
You probably won't notice the difference.
