it's not your ram, you're only running it at about 213mhz (DDR426)! (assuming my calculations are correct...;))
either your board won't do it, or your cpu won't :(.
instead of running the ram at below rated speed, why don't you try running a smaller divider, or even 1:1 (although I doubt your ram will do DDR532).
Try a smaller divider and find the max overclock, then try running 1:1 (fsb will be lower) and try it out. All about experimentation!
If you really want to use 5:4 try a higher vcore. I also recommend check out reviews for your board and see what the max FSB they could get was.
