My Q6600 G0 didn't like over 333 MHz in two different motherboards that
run my E6400 at 8 x 440. There's a lot of current flowing at a low voltage,
and a substantial voltage drop under load is very common. Frequently, four
sticks of RAM often won't run as fast as two. Also, I have had two sticks of
RAM go bad on me with this setup. Checking your memory with a lowered
multiplier, are we, hmm?
