Default Native DDR2 1066 Support

What does it mean when a MB says it supports 1066 natively?

My System Specs

Default

Older chipsets only supported up to DDR2 800 (or even older DDR2 667). For an overclocker this isn't that big of a deal as they'll just set to 800 in bios and then raise FSB to get 1000+ out of their high end ram, but for folks who run stock a "1066 native support" chipset allows them to set it to 1066 in bios without needing to overclock.
