Use CPU-Z to look at the CL value of your DDR2 RAM modules....

yeah cpu-z shows cl 6 on 2gb ram--shows cl 5 on 1gb of ram,that sure is
false advertisement on Kingston part,they show a latency of 5 on the 2gb
modules

In general, CL 6 is slower than CL 5. And when you use SPD for the
motherboard to detect the RAMs, it will choose the slowest CL, which is
CL 6 in your case.

Check if your BIOS support memory overclocking. Try setting the CL 6 RAM
to CL 5 (no guarantee it would work).
