I consider MemTest with no errors for two hours to be stable, but I'm not fussy. I only let it run through the night when I believe I found the absolute overclock.

Are you benchmarking as you are going along? I'd use EVEREST and the Memory Read test maybe, and compare it as you go along. You may want to try 2.5-2-3-5 at the same speeds maybe. Bump it up to DDR520 isn't a bad idea either though. Sometimes the latency and such will offset the extra DDR, so benchmarking along the way will let you know what's the best setting.
