Couldn't agree more here. Conroes will boot well past their absolute stability point and remain stable enough to do most things... including game. However, RAM can go from rock solid to erroring in seconds... within a few mhz.

Most, if not all, DDR2-667 RAM will be able to hit 400mhz FSB 1:1 (DDR2-800 speeds) @ 2.2v with 5-5-5-15-2T timings.

You DO have a p5n-e SLI motherboard, which DOES allow unlinked mode. Make sure to use it ;)
