Compatability?

Is there any settings that can be made to allow a set of Corsair Twin2x2048-6400 run on an ASUS P5NSLI MB? I've read where its been successful at running this speed ram on Anandtech, and it'll boot to the desktop for about 2 seconds, then reboots. No problems with the Value Corsair Ram DDR2-533, It works fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the memory frequency at DDR667 and then test the module/'s one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure. With this MB you may have to disable legacy USB when running any memory test.

I adjusted voltage to 2.1 and was able to get the system to both recognize and boot with the ram, but it's not stable...if I install a program or do much browsing on the PC, BSOD comes back with "hardware" issues. If I install the recommended ram back in, problem goes away...Is there some timings I can make to help compatibility? I have built alot of PCs but haven't done any timing adjustments on the ram...I know it's 5-5-5-12 (4 setting adjustments) but there is 5 or 6 options in the bios and I'm not sure which ones to make. any suggestions?
