Indeed, it seems increasing DDR voltage fixed this issue. I can load Windows OC'd after my system has been shut down for awhile.

As far as my room temperature. At night, I have a space heater on (yeah, a space heater, it's cold in Minnesota). My room temp is usually warmer at night because of the space heater. I turn it off during the day because I'm usually not home, so my room temp is usually cooler during the day. This is only during winter. This is only matter of fact, just trying to shed light and provide more information on the situation. But, it is possible still that my room is cool by night, warm by day. But honestly, it's colder than sin 24/7 here.

I really think DDR voltage improved my system's chance of booting in to Windows. But why would it boot in to Windows before increasing DDR voltage? It almost seemed like my system needed to warm up... which seems ridiculous, but that's how it seems.

Anyway, thank you all for your advice.
