That is only 4 connections to the cpu, I have only seen problems when one has u 
4 dimms and usually all dimms have to be double sided for a load of 8 on the 
cpu.    If you had a load of 8 then 333 is the max speed, with only 4 the speed 
is still supposed to be 400.

Are the dimms identical?   I had an issue on one of my machines where 2 of the 
dimms paired up had different timing (one was slightly slower) and that appeared 
to cause all sorts of crashes, setting both dimms to the faster speed worked fine.

And sometimes these issues only come out with faster cpus, with 4 double sided 
dimms it worked fine with a slower cpu but did not work with a faster cpu.
