Ok...im looking to upgrade my memory to 8gb....I have a phenom 2 940...and i want to use all my memory slot...

My plan was to have 4 2gb sticks of ram all working at 1066 dual channel...

I have been reading that this isnt possible and motherboards will knock the speed back to 800...

Is it possible to run 4 sticks of 2gb ram all at 1066?!?!
 
Depends on your motherboard. Many will revert to a slower speed with all 4 slots filled. Can't guarantee full performance with 4 slots filled. If you try it, and your board runs at 1066, please post your results.

Did it end up working at 1066? If so, what mobo do you have?

I just ordered 8GB (4X2) of G.skill 1100 (PC8800) ram for my setup and I hoping it will work. I am running a Gigabyte GA-MA790X Mobo with a Phenom II 940 BE.

I'll report back if mine works.
