System: e6600/S3 F4/OCZ Platinum Rev 2 (DDR2-800) - No OC

My bios has this memory running at 5-5-5-15 while the specs claim 4-4-4-15. So, I manually changed it to 4-4-4-12 and increased vDIMM to 2.0. Memtest ran for 9+ hrs without any errors.

The problem is when the system is set to standby, it never comes out of it with a simple power button press. I have to disconnect PSU's cord and reattach before it will even start. No beeps from the machine during this blank process.

So, I changed my timings to 4-4-4-15 and the problem still persists. OTOH, if I let my MB choose the timings, the machine comes out of standby without any issues.

What is going on here? Do I have some defective memory or do I need to flash a new version of bios?
