At 790, you might be able to pull off a command rate of 1. You might have to up the voltage one notch (but don't go higher than 2.25v). The benefit would be quite pronounced. If you're able to do this, let me know and we can go over some advanced timings that will take full advantage of CR1.

Dostoyevsky77, I notice you have your ram running at 667 1t. Do you see much difference between that and 800 2t? Just trying to get some ideas before i try it out on mine

I've never tested 800 @ 2T. That seems a little bit of a waste to me, because then you're SO close to being where you can drop to 1T. For your setup, you can test 1T at 711 for 1:1 (if you're still as sigged). Try 3-3-3-8-1T with tRC at 13. Then compare that with 1066 (3:2) at 4-4-4-12-2T (tRC at 18). We have similar systems (quad + P5N32-E + PC2-8500 Ballistix), so take a look at some of my notes below. In all cases, I use tRC = tRAS + CAS + 2. Keep in mind, all of my tests are at 4x1GB, so your benches should probably be a bit better.

**EDIT: Looking at my notes, I see that I HAVE tested at 800. It was a long time ago (list runs chronologically from June of this year), and you can see my results were bad, so I probably decided never to revisit those dark days.

It might be because you have PC2-6400s, which are the same chip as the 8500s, but not hand-picked to clock at the 8500 speed. It also very well could be due to your 4x1GB configuration. I am able to run at 1066 with 4x1, but only at lower FSB (you can see my benches in my last post). You might be overstressing your memory controller, but try a slightly higher northbridge voltage first to rule that out. Ensure you have adequate cooling for it and that you monitor your NB temps closely after you overvolt it.
