problems with 8RDA

I got my 8RDA from PCworld in the UK about 5 days ago, nd I having a few problems with the beast.
I am using athlon xp1700+ JUICB0251
256mb GEIL pc3500 cas2 ram
bios 31st January 2003
Inno3d geforce4ti4600 det 42.86
Western 40gig JB 8mb cache hard disk
Windows XP pro sp1 nvidia driver 2.03

My system runs stably and smooth, 95% of the time.
when I set ram to 166mhz then I start to get errors in memtest86, I can run memtest at 133, 200 mhz and it will pass with no problems.
Fsb ddr pass/fail
133 133 pass (5-2-2, 6-3-3, 4-2-2)
133 166 fail (all settings fail)
133 200 pass(5-2-2, 6-3-3, 4-2-2)
166 133 pass(5-2-2, 6-3-3, 4-2-2)
166 166 fail
166 200 pass(5-2-2, 6-3-3, 4-2-2)
200 133 pass(5-2-2, 6-3-3, 4-2-2)
200 166 pass(5-2-2, 6-3-3, 4-2-2)
200 200 pass(5-2-2, 6-3-3)

my XP1700 maxs out @1.95v at 2234mhz.

but I can run 230mhz fsb with 75% memory ratio, as shown below. Has anyone encountered these problems with GeilPC3500 cas2 6-3-3 ram. I have ran this ram at 220mhz in my old 4gea+ at 6-2-2, and at 200mhz regularly in my kt400 mobo.
I am thinking of returning the mobo back and getting an exchange, but at stock speeds and at highly overclocked speeds the mobo is stable but in between it is a little flakey. I have another 2nd hand stick of geil coming this week. I think I will try running the board in dddr mode and see how things compare.
Has anyone else had these problems
