some memory modules just don't like it others do. I've noticed in my overclocking stints the OC seems to be more stable when I make sure the ram is not running past it's spec. If your ram is 1066mhz stock staying below that will help. If your ram was 800 your computer will have a better chance of booting up running at or below 800mhz.

This is why people buy low volt ram... it gives them the head room to overclock the ram along with the CPU to achieve higher OC's. It's just a matter of finding the sweet spot but don't give up it's fun to do. :) I picked up the 1200mhz ram for my phenom which gives me heaps more options for a stable OC.
