Need some help with tuning my new CMT16GX3M4X2133C9 memory (16GB DDR-2133)

Level 8
I just got my new memory and installed it and amazingly it booted into windows with all 4 sticks installed running at 2133MHz, all other settings were at the FX-8150's defaults (as far as the multipliers for CPU + NB + HT) using the DOCP settings for that memory. I thought it worked fine but when I decided to run a memtest86+ it failed about 75%of the way....I retested it at 1333MHz and all other settings at known good values and it did pass.

I am trying to learn as much as I can about overclocking but I am still a beginner. any help would be appreciated.

Tested settings:

CPU frequency: 3600MHz
Memory frequency: DDR3-2133 (1066MHz)
CPU NB frequency: 2600MHz
HT Link frequency: 2600MHz

CPU Voltage: 1.45V
CPU NB Voltage: 1.35V
Memory voltage: 1.5V

CPU Load Line Calibration: High
CPU/NB Load Line Calibration: High
CPU Voltage Over-Current Protection: 140%
CPU/NB Voltage Over-Current Protection: 130%

Memory specs:

16GB (4x 4GB) DOMINATOR GT DDR3 2133 9-11-10-27 1.5V



Processor: AMD FX-8150
Videocard: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6990
Mainboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula - BIOS: 1003
Memory: CMT16GX3M4X2133C9
SSD: 2x in raid 0 (2 x Corsair Force GT 240 GB)
