Default summary?

So, has anyone gotten an MSI K8T Neo-FIS2R to run with their XMS 3200LL at 2-3-2-6 AND pass Memtest? I've done my searching and it looks like people can run at these timings and are happy with windows stability, as well can I, but Memtest86+ barfs errors on Test#5.

I've followed all the suggestions I found:
  • Timings: 2-3-2-6
  • Vdimm: 2.7V
  • Populate slots 1&3
  • Bios 1.20

Rig: AMD Athlon 3400+; MSI K8T Neo FIS2R; Corsair TWINX1024-3200LL

Memtest is happy if I tweak the tRP up to 3 (yielding 2-3-3-6). I've benched at these settings and it actually costs me a couple dozen 3Dmarks. Not that in the grand scheme that's such a big deal, but I'm guaranteed 2-3-2-6 right? ... or should I chalk up the added latency to a mobo limitation?
