Sorry man, I run kingston DDR2 on my old Q6600 and it is the worst ram I've ever had. It doesn't even like to run at stock speeds, let alone OC'd.

you sure the chipset can hold it?

if you tried manual settings too instead of auto,then perhaps clock it a little bit lower, maybe between 1350 and slowly go up?
