Keep in mind that the RAM speed is not 152MHz - it is 304MHz. With a ratio of 4/3 this give a final RAM speed of 405MHz. The next ratio that exceeds 405MHz is 5/3 which gets a RAM speed of 506MHz. I don't think there's any possiblity that the RAM will run this fast.

The only way to be sure that you current setting are stable is to run Memtest86 for 3 passes or overnight if you can with no more than a single error.
