My RAM is not running at a correct speed.

I have assembled a new desktop PC successfully. [Using the Build Your Own PC section of this website for information on how to do that]. I bought a DDR2-1066 (PC2-8500) RAM memory kit from Kingston (KHX8500D2K2_ 4G) that should run at 1,066MHz. However, when I run the CPU-Z utility, it reported that the memory is running at PC2-6400 speed only.
That is, at 800MHz instead of 1,066MHz. I have downloaded a PDF document on Kingston’s website that says:”Each module has been tested to run at 1,066MHz at a latency timing of 5-5-5-15 at 2.2V”.
How do I get the RAM to run at its correct speed?

The RAM speed does not depend on only the speed of the Ram itself, but the speed of the data transfer as a whole. That is that the devices associated to get and put data from the RAM hast o be compatible to the RAM. The maximum speed is not always achievable. This is a fact. In some cases the time is only a fraction of the whole time. In this review it is quite clear that the components of the whole system has to be configured for the utmost functionality and compatibility measures are to be considered for each such peripheral and devices. Thanks.
