Also, when I tried to overclock the ram to 1866 the system wouldn't boot at all.

DDR ram. The speed shows 800 MHZ, but you get 1600 M transfers / second. What it's showing is, I think, the clock rate.

The second is easier: the ram doesn't work at that speed. You might try raising the voltage a tiny bit at a time, but this is not my field. I underclock for quiet systems.

800mhz x 2 (Double data rate(ddr) = 1600mhz

What makes you think 1600mhz memory will boot at 1866mhz??
