    When you raise the voltage of the memory, it forces it to create a stronger signal when communicating with the system board. Stock voltages for DDR memory is 2.5v so the 2.6v setting won't do any harm. I have had my Crucial DDR sitting at 2.6 since I had it.

    Also on the topic of memory, what CAS settings are you using in the BIOS? Sometimes if you get very aggressive on the memory timings, it causes the system to refuse to run higher FSB speeds.

    2.5 and every memory timing or ANYTHING memory related is left at default.

    Pop the voltage up a notch then. If you start getting better results, then you may want to look at some sort of active cooling for the memory modules and crank them up even more. :)
