Default G Skill PC2-8000 4GB Kit, doesnt work at 1000Mhz.. =/

Hi guys,

I just got my G Skill PC2-8000 Memory today, and it looks like it doesn't work on 1000Mhz, I've tried setting voltage to 1.8, 2.0, 2.1, and still nothing, it gives blue screen.. doesn't even go into windows.. I can only run this memory at 800Mhz @ 5-5-5-15.. Whats wrong with it?? do I have to RMA memory?

5-5-5-15 @ 1.9v

Just because memory says it can RUN at 1000mhz does not mean it will.

That memory is finicky and motherboards will play a HUGE role.
