CMX256a-3200C2pt help, 400mhzfsb

My specs are in my sig, the processor is stock 333mhz. I just got 2 sticks of 3200c2pt 2x256mb. they run fine at 2-3-3-6 settings at 333mhz. Now heres the problem. I used to run my old stick of ram, Kingston Value 512mb Pc3200 at 420mhz fsb, rock solid. Now to start out, i set the fsb to 400mhz to see if it would boot. I hit the power button and it went haywire, The windows xp boot screen won't even show, then when i restart the computer won't even post. I also saw in one of the stickys that the VDIMM shoudl be set to 2.7. I have mine on Auto now, the other options close to 2.7 are 2.63 and 2.77. which shoudl i choose if any? Whats going on?? Thanks, Ryan

well i figured my old kingston value ram could handle it so this performance ram could. anyways, i managed to get it stable by increasing the VDIMM from 2.7 to 2.9(the max i could select since it was already default at 2.7) and it works stable now, is that ok?, btw the timings are set at 2.5-3-3-6. is all this ok? thanks, ryan
