the stability issues aren't with the actual speed of the RAM, it's in the data transfer between the RAM and cpu, it's the very definition of bottlenecking, it's akin to having a stick of 800mhz RAM and a stick of 667mhz RAM running together at the same time, the 800mhz RAM will only run at 667mhz, the RAM speed is limited by it's slowest component, the data transfer between the cpu and RAM works on the same principal...
