Default Ok, show me the DDR2

I bought some Corsair Twin XMS2 DDR2 800...


It works OK at stock speeds, but when I bump up the FSB it craps out. I saw that the Buffalo firestix are on sale, should I get those instead? OR point me in another direction where I can get the RAM up to ~900+ speeds. For less than $250 pls.

Is the ram being overclocked?
If so
A) increase voltages
B) relax the timings

I upped the voltage to 2.20 and the timings are at 5-6-5-18. (5-5-5-15 stock) Don't really want to push the voltage more... I could loosen the timings more I guess.

I can get the cpu up to 3.6 with a 9X401 config, but that's the outside edge of stability. I want to do a 8X460 or a 7X550, but then the FSB pushes the memory speed up to 850-900mhz and it can't take it-- then I get BSOD's with "memory management" tags.
