Actually I mean lower the FSB but keep the RAM the same speed it's stable at now.
Then, to find out if the RAM is the problem at higher speeds, try increasing the FSB speed little by little. (which is linked to the RAM speed and will therefore also increase your RAM clock speed)
If your RAM runs at the speed it was set to run at when your PC was unstable, then it's probably not causing the instability you get above 3.8GHz.
If it won't overclock and you know the rest of the system is stable, then you know the RAM is causing your problem.
Sorry, I should have explained that better.
Also, I don't think you can drop your RAM speed below twice the FSB frequency, I couldn't on any of my boards.
Edit: Oh if CPU-z says it's 800 then you can set it to 800 when the FSB is higher, like I said my boards wouldn't do that and not very many do so I didn't think you could.
