GeIL 2 GB 1066 RAM Clocked Lower?

I've heard things about how PC2 8500 RAM usually gets read as PC2 6400 RAM and used as that, but obviously, you can overclock it.

However, whenever I try to put mine at a 533 MHz FSB, Windows fails to start. I either get a blue screen or Windows starts trying to repair itself.

I haven't messed with the timings yet, but I did try to increase the voltage, no luck.

I've managed to overclock my new AMD Athlon II X4 to about 3.33 GHz and in CPU-Z and I've noticed that the RAM actually runs at around 510 MHz. Does that mean when I raise the FSB of the processor, the RAM frequency increase automatically? If not, how can I go about setting my RAM to a higher frequency without blue screening?

You can change the strapping in order to change ram speed individually of the mobo. Like 1:1, 1:2, 5:3, 5:8 to name a few.
I've got the latencies running at 5-5-5-15, voltage at around 2 and it's running. But whenever I try to overclock, it won't post. Why?
