Or the OC is just unstable that high, and has nothing to do with the RAM, though BSOD's are indicative of RAM issues. Could be your PSU isn't beefy enough? I didn't look at what your PSU is before typing this, so if it's fine, then disregard that idea. Hmm...

EDIT--yeah, upon closer inspection, your PSU should be fine.
I did run orthos at lower clocks..like 2.8 and it was stable. And it could be indeed RAM timings...donno...but when it restarts, it like overheating to me..is 42 for mobo good?

Well, crap. Maybe you've just passed your max stable OC. What are you at now? 3.6? That is pretty high. Are your temps okay? I would go down in clocks and monitor stability (orthos, prime, what have you)--and just leave it at your max stable OC that passes orthos for a few hours. Doubt there's much else you can do that you haven't already tried.

try running at 3.6 at a 1:1 ram to fsb ratio, and running with real low timings, like 6-6-6-18 or something. if that dont work, then its either your motherboard nbridge isnt getting enough voltage or your cpu isnt.

Well, I'd be surprised if 2.8 is your max stable OC. But maybe it is.

Did you systematically go through the timings? Like leave them all absurdly high and run your system at 3.6. If you're still getting errors, it's probably not RAM timings, but more likely your board just isn't stable running the CPU at that speed. Also, are you delivering more vdimm to your RAM?

Gah, beaten to it by a minute! Curses!

whats your current cpu voltage? whats your ram voltage?

I changed all timings in once from 5-5-5-15 to 4-4-4-12. Restarted, and then I began to OC my cpu with 50 fbs each time.
