still i believe, you need to reduce problem further. 

just keep two or three rows of sphere. 

to use boolean, make sure that sphere do not have only point contact. they should intersect each other considerably. i am saying considerably because if they intersect only marginally, it will create sharp angles and mesh will have bad elements.
