Temp is definitely not the problem since i'm not going over mid 50s ever. Any ideas or suggestions? I don't know what I could possibly do to add stability given that this is a very low overclock.
Try setting back to default in the bias. Unlink memory. Set v-core at 1.41 and then up the FSB to what ever you have now. Don't adjust the other voltages but leave them on auto.

I have my memory unlinked at this time and not OC'd.
I have isolated my problem to this budget memory since Orthos on CPU only is perfectly fine, it's when I run the blend test that I get an error.

So now my question is, how come my memory is giving me so much trouble even when it's unlinked and not OC'd at all? I don't think it's simply a quality issue since both sticks are corsair.

I think that is good memory so I wouldn't worry about that. I am not really sure what to tell you. I know you should be able to overclock a lot easier than that. I had no problems at all.

I'm at:
vcore: 1.45v

nForce SPP: 1.5v

temp at 48 with full load, which is okay i guess given that the ambient is really low.
anyone think those voltages are too high?
I don't know what's the recommended settings for fsb volts and nforce spp for that mobo, you'll have to read up or someone else can tell you. But I think you're vcore was too low personally. Try changing one setting at a time instead of all at once, to avoid confusing your troubleshooting. Always keep an eye on those temps when raising vcore, especially under load. I would use Intel's thermal analysis tool (TAT) if you want accurate cpu temp readings, or some people I know use Coretemp. Stability test overnight, rinse, bake at 350 for 2hrs, spread a nice thick layer of icing on it, and enjoy!!

Oh ya you're OK to go a bit higher on vdimm. I believe they warantee them up to 1.9v for corsair, and many people go higher than that too. I would have some air blowing across them at least if you go very high on vdimm. Check them to make sure the chips aren't getting excessively hot as well. I could deffinitely see that ram walling here before your cpu or mobo, especially if you don't give them some more juice. Again, memtest is an easy and very good way to check your ram stability. Those other stress tests do test the ram some, but not like memtest does, it will tell you if there's any kind of failures with it . Good luck

Until you run memtest or something on it, there's no way of knowing it's good ram or not. It can be the highest end, most expensive, best brand stuff you can get, and fail right outta the box or soon after. Guessing that it's good because it's corsair doesn't exactly rule it out as a problem.

So you think upping my ram voltage might do the trick, even if it's not OC'd?

Well, I don't know, you me and phildog are all posting same times, I missed that part that you went back to stock.

I don't really know that mobo, and this link unlink setting you guys are talking about. Sounds like phil is helping you on that side of things since he has that board. Sounds like you should go through all those bios settings, read up on what's all the good settings for that mobo I guess. Or unless phil or someone can rundown for you all the important bios settings for that board. Phildog's got you on the right track though, one thing at a time, don't change a bunch of settings at once, unless you know that's the correct setting for it.

Just remember that anything above ddr2667 is an OC for that ram, and at stock voltages I think you should be testing it's stability, once you get your oc back on that is.

This is frustrating.
Once again I have my CPU OC'd to 3.2ghz, and RAM at stock.
Orthos CPU-stress was okay for 7+ hours, but RAM test will not go over 30 minutes. CPU/RAM blend test will bug out in less than 1 minute......

Don`t know if this helps as i`ve only got my system OC`d to 3.0 ghz but it failed orthos blend after 30 secs until i upped ram voltage to 1.9 from 1.8 which did the trick for me. Orthos ran for 27 hrs no probs.

Awesome. I can't wait to go home and try tonight, although I think my wife plans on making me clean the house.
I remember trying up to 1.85 but didn't want to go above it since I thought it would hurt them.
