The RAM is on a divider

Go into your BIOS and fix it

What about removing the battery?

I think even OEM boards have a CMOS reset jumper thing

haha, see that's the problem, this started when i had to clear the CMOS due to some other HDD detection problems. i solved the HDD problems, but ended up with this.
So clearing the CMOS has been tried and is unhelpful. it seems my default settings according to the CMOS are acctually PC 133 not PC 200... strange eh?
I think this is the only time clearing a CMOS has caused problems for an OC'er

Edit: Congrats on your 100th rep and second flame boredom!!! just acheived after your post!

I forgot to mention, there was no divider option in the BIOS, yet i understand that one is in place none the less... Any ideas from here?

Try pulling the 1 512mb stick out and seeing if it sets it back to 200mhz. If I recall correctly some boards reduce the memory speed to try and compensate for possible problems with unmatched sets. It would at least give you somewhere to start.

Also what if any memory options do you have in the BIOS.

My first impression is what he has said.

With my old system if I had miss matched sticks the system would automatically put the memory on a divider (5:4) down clocking the memory to DDR333 when in fact they were rated at DDR400
