I find with most PC2-8500 ram you have to set it to 1066mhz manually. Auto will set it to 800mhz, so it's quite common you had to do this as well.
To factor out the ram, try unlinking the ram and setting all memory settings to auto. See if you can stablize @ 3.6ghz by upping the vcore and nb voltage. Auto settings for the memory should be quite stable, so if it's still unstable no matter what you do, you may have reached your max OC for that chip/mobo combination.
