are you talking about the 1333 mushkin silverlines cas 9? Are you doing this on stock voltage? I never really tried pushing mine. I read that they were not too good for overclocking so I never even tried.

You are joking right? My ram have heatspreaders for a stock speed and voltage of 1600 7-8-7 with 1.35v. I oc them to 1600 6-8-6-20-24-1T with 1.6v and they are barely warm. It is a marketing thing and that all. Most DDR3 can handle 1.75v with heatspreader. And I have some DDR2 1066 without heatspreader and with 2.1v. They are still running fine.

I'm running mine at 1.59V
I'm wary of pushing the voltage past 1.65 from all the horror stories I've read.
Try setting them for 1.59V 8-8-8-24 1T
They should be able to do that easily with no heatspreaders.
