Windows 7 OEM Home Pre. x64

I haven't touched my RAM voltage. The only Voltage I touched was the +.025 for the CPU.

Well... you need to make sure the RAM is runing at it's rated speed if you want it to run at 1333. And if you didn't use XMP settings, or set the RAM manually, I'll be it wasn't even running at 1333 to begin with. Also CPU-Z shows them running at 1000MHz (500 x 2 = 1000)

I'm betting the RAM wasn't getting enough power to begin with, which is why you couldn't run them at 1333MHz.

What you need to do is set the RAM settings manually in the BIOS. You can get the info off the RAM sticks, then set them manually in the BIOS.

Give it a try.

Good. BTW your CPU-Z did show them running at 1000MHz, not 1066.

I completely agree with Sygnus here. You should manually input those values for the RAM. (Speed, Timings, and Voltages)
This very likely may have been the RAM issue.
So long as you are running at or below its rated speed there shouldnt be a problem here, although occasionally there can be, depending on clock speeds.

For now however, I would personally set the RAMs voltage to whats its specs are, but leave it @ the 1000Mhz setting for the time being.
Just until you know the CPU itself is completely stable, this way RAM should not be a factor with instabilities.

Then, once you are happy with CPU clocks, stability, and tempratures, start working with speeding up the RAM.
