Well, every system is different, but you are getting close to speeds where faster RAM will reduce the chance of it being a timing issue. RAM is pretty cheap, so it is a good possibility to eliminate, if you know what I mean.
If the problems remain with the faster RAM, then you have to keep sleuthing.
