There is no such thing as 20 minutes stable. You're either stable or you're not.
I'm surprised that quad did not do 3Gz on stock voltage considering its a Go, but then again, all chips are different.
I would set it back to 333 fsb and manually increase the voltage by one notch, then run Prime again. If you went 20 minutes, then you are very close to stable, and one notch more voltage should do the trick.
I would not try to overclock the ram until you have the cpu stable and running at the speed you want.
You can monitor temps with Core Temps and use HW Monitor as a backup to compare. (yes they always match)
I use CPU-Z to monitor cpu voltage and use HW Monitor as a backup once again. (yes they always match)
