At the same speed, lower timings (5,5,5,15) is faster than 6,6,6,18.
I guess you mean that you can't go from 344 to 345, not the other way around.
If it boots 344 FSB and it does not 345, even with 6,6,6,18, then your wall is based either on the cpu or the NB or simply the motherboard.
Are you running on Intel's stock cooler?
If you reduce the CPU voltage, is it still stable?
Are you setting the cpu (Vcore) manually, or is it in Auto?
What's your NB (Northbridge) voltage?
Have you tried to increase NB voltage?
Try running OCCT Linpack test and report temperatures. I am worried about your CPU at that voltage...
