My new ASUS P5W64 WS arrived today, and it says ""DDR2 800/667/533 FSB 1066/800/533" on the box. Does that mean it only supports RAM up to 800MHz? The RAM I ordered to accompany the new board is Corsair Dominator 8500C5D (2 x 1024MB; 240-Pin DDR2 1066 SDRAM (PC2 8500)), with a Max Speed of 1066MHz. Are they compatible?

There is no JEDEC spec. for DDR2 1066 plus the Intel chipset spec. doesn't claim support.
That doesn't mean that it can't run it though, it should fit fine.
