a part of my mobo specs say:
Notice: Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operation with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets.

as for my RAM, its JEDEC tested but at 1.9V and it has a timing of 4-4-4-12.

also, my mobo supports DDR2 800 but my RAM is DDR2 675

should i be worrying much about these?

You motherboard most likely supports DDR2-553, DDR2-667 and DDR2-800. As long as the memory works, it is nothing to worry about.

Motherboard designers strive to build "backwards compatibility" into their designs. But they may not be able to test all combinations or guarantee their stability.

This doesn't mean that it won't work with the product - but it does mean that you're SOL (Sh*t Outta Luck) if you ever need support/service from them.

That being said - what really counts here is "Does your system work with it?" If it's running without any problems I wouldn't worry about it.

Just for peace of mind, try running this free memory tester: http://www.memtest86.com/ Follow the directions exactly and let it run for at least 2 - 3 hours (overnight is better).
