Your RAM is set at default 533MHz (1066MHz) and the RAM's SPD for that is 7-7-7-20, 1.5v.
There is no SPD for 667MHz (1333MHz), using 685MHz (1370MHz) is 9-9-9-25, 1.5v.
When you're having RAM issues it's a good test to loosen the timings and check the stability, running the 685MHz timings at 533MHz should be very stable as these timings are relaxed.
I'll chock this inconsistency up to it being 'Value RAM', memory modules are rated by the 'Bin' system, they are tested and graded by performance level. The better modules are used for higher frequency RAM, and overclocking RAM, the less quality RAM is used for 'Value RAM' and sold for a lower price.
For this reason value RAM can and does have strange behavior and is known to not be stable.

Take the RAM cards out and clean the pin with alcohol, check that the slots are clean.

Set the DRAM voltage to 1.55v.
Set the QPI/Vtt voltage to 1.20v.

Leave the first four timing settings at 9-9-9-20, if that is what it likes, leave the rest on auto.
Change the RAM 'Command Rate' to 2.
Change the 'Uncore Frequency' to X18.
Post the CPUZ 'Memory' tab.

If this doesn't work, boot with one RAM card in slot 1, then put one RAM card in slot 3 check if it boots, repeat with one RAM card in slot 5.
If the system won't boot in any of these slots, let me know.

Have you check if the CPU has any bent pins?
