    No. Here is why: (It should work, see my edit.)

    RAM = DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
    Motherboard = DDR2 1366+/1066

    There is a problem with the Memory Standard on the website. It says DDR2 1366+. The fastest DDR2 is 1200. After some googling though, apparently 1366 is the fastest speed you can overclock your RAM to, so then this MB effectively supports DDR2 1200 (PC2 9600) and can be overclocked to 1366+.

    Here is some RAM that should work.

    *Edit - Wait a second. If it supports DDR2 1200 then DDR2 667 should still work in it. It will just run slower. After googling your MB's owner's guide it says the RAM should work too, so try one stick at a time in different slots and see what happens. You could have ended up with bad RAM or a bad slot.
