    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?
