@Eric

Thank you! Looks like bumping the RAM to 2.0v stopped the video stuttering/driver crashes with all 4 sticks in. I'll have to run more testing to be sure. Again, thanks for everyone's help! Now to just hope the system will last long enough until I can get some major upgrades

Prime 95 Blend test BSOD'd the machine after an hour with 4 sticks @2.0v. Back to the drawing board. Going back to 2 sticks @1.8v and running another Blend test.

Silly question. Are there any programs that stress not only CPU and RAM, but GPU at the same time? I've been using Prime 95 for CPU/RAM. Everything seems fine and dandy, until I decide to launch a game of any sort.

for GPU only

As for full system tests look for game benchmarks and testers (loads on guru3d website) HERE

Thanks. Will try some of those settings and some more tests.

Still having the video issues even with just 2 sticks in. Ran Memtest again (3rd time now I think) and let it do 3 passes, nothing wrong with the RAM. Guess I'll just play with some more of the RAM settings and check back later.

After playing with every setting imaginable, 50 passes of LinX, 20 passes of IBT at max, and 24 hours of Prime95 on Blend, I'm running solid @3.4GHz. I'd like to thank everyone here for their help. I tried to get 3.6, but I'm thinking it's the board holding me back. No big deal, I'll be hopping to Ivy Bridge once it comes out.

A 1Ghz OC is a good OC
