If you're mobo can take dual channel then the two sticks will be best but 512 at 400MHz won't make that much a difference to 333MHz. Plug the other stick in on it's own and see if it still goes at 333MHz, if it does it's the FSB not RAM. If it's the FSB, you can't do anything so just plug both in

Does the two sticks of corsair memory run at DDR400 when its just one in the system(you may have said allready but im not reading through that its a bit incoherent and i havent had much sleep in the last couple of days).
You may need to alter some settings in bios i would take a look manually adjusting the settings should be able to fix the problem as long as you have a vague idea as to what you are doing.
Also try the memory in another system that supports DDR400 if you can that would sort out wether it is the ram, but if its not DDR400 and it was sold clearly as DDR400 then send it back to where you got it or if its defective corsair memory has a lifetime warrranty just send it back to corsair for some new stuff.

You can sometimes overclock the mobo chipset and itll take the ram up by the same amount but thats rather dangerous and not reccomended. The extra half a gig wont make a huge difference to performance i would just stick it in another computer or sell it.
