The ram is fine. There is better and there is worse. Do you want to know anything in particular?

Not sure, no timings or stock voltage is listed. If you want 1066 Mhz RAM might as well get the cheapest if you are stuck using that retailer.

You have to take newegg's reviews with a grain of salt. Half the people on there that rate themselves as high really don't know they're butt from a hole in the ground.

Or are you going to believe guys like that rate This AM3 DFI board like this?

Pros: rich in features and defects

Cons: rich in defects...
I ordered one of these shortly after it was released and my cpu WOULD NOT MOUNT (x4 940)...so i wasted about an hour with a magnifying glass examining the mounting block and my cpu's pins...tried and tried...and would not mount period. I RMA'd it immediately. New egg was kind enough to cross ship me a replacement of the exact same model overnight (I have been a customer of thiers for over 6 yrs) and i got the new one 48 hours later. I opened it...tried to mount the same cpu, same problem...same examination procedures, and rma'd it in less that 2 hours. DFI has issues with this model. In fairness I have used over a hundred dfi boards and loved them and their rock solid stability and overclocking features as i am a custom high performance pc builder....however this baby needs shot.
I opted to order the new ASUS Crosshair III Board that was released on may 29 of 2009...not to mention its broken all overclocking world records :) so im excited to play with IT !!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: all and all you are hard pressed to beat a DFI motherboard if you know what your doing. If you don't know what your doing...stay away from it...they are all very finicky and particular much like... like a high maintainance women....if ya cant handle them...they will drive ya nuts but the performance is worth it :) ASUS is a good choice for noobs, and so is Foxconn actually.
