    My PC2-8500 holds up to DDR-1080 but with 2.1v
    Leave MCH Frequency Latch on auto, just select the apropriate multiplier.
    SMM 2.040B usually work, you will likely need to increase tRD(Static tRead Value) to 8, this should be good up to 450MHz FSB.
    Try to put some load (Prime95) and see what is the core temp difference then, maybe one DTSs are stuck, they should start changing under load.

    As I recall, others had problems with the standard MCH Core voltage settings with some GSkill 4GB memory models.
    Setting MCH Core = 1.05 volts often solved the problem.

    You might have stuck cpu core sensors, where the core temperatures never go below a certain value. My cpu core temps are 40o & 35o (C) at idle, even when the room temperature is below 18o.

    Some have problems when CPU Host Frequency is set to 400MHz. Try 399 or 401MHz.

    Have you tried running Memtest86+ with only one memory module installed.

    No it cannot be fixed, but if they will start moving above 50c it's not a problem.
