Yup I am prety sure it's the voltages. And by voltage I don't mean just memory or vcore but it could be FSB/Chipset etc...

I've set the cpu core voltage to 1.35 (up from the stock 1.31) and the memory voltage to 1.9 (up from 1.85 v). I then set the fsb to what I thought would be something that definately wouldn't crash (so my core speed was 2.7 GHz). CRASH. I don't know what's going on. Do I need to do something with my memory timings? They are defaulted at 5-7-7-21.

My BIOS says:

CPU core 1.31
CPU FSB 1.2
Memory 1.850
nforce spp 1.40

You said your ram is 1:1 right? Go in the BIOS and set your ram to Linked -> Sync Mode

1:1 in the 680i bios = actually 1:2 ratio
Sync Mode is the 1:1 setting.

1:1 in the 680i BIOS at 1400Mhz FSB = trying to run your ram at what people call 1400Mhz... Good luck with that lol.

1400FSB / 4 = 350Mhz
In Synced mode that would mean 350Mhz ram which is What is called "700Mhz ram". (Slower than PC6400 which is called 800Mhz ram).

In 1:1 mode your board is actually set in 1:2 like I said. So you take the 350Mhz multiply it by 2 divide it by 1 result = 700Mhz which result in "1400Mhz Ram". Your ram is rated "1066 Mhz" so thats a whole 344 higher. No DDR2 ram that I know can run at this speed... And that's the reason your PC fall in CPU overclock safe mode when you reboot.



Here are my voltages:
vCore: 1.44something
FSB: 1.4
Memory: 1.9
SPP: 1.4
MCP: 1.625
HT: 1.4

Thank you for the very imformative post! Just for my understanding, you figure that if I manually set the memory to 1:2 that should fix my problem? This seems to go against what everyone says about going with 1:1 for the best results, but hey, at this point I'll try anything! FYI - I did already have my memory linked.

No actually what I said is the 1:1 setting you see in the BIOS is in fact 1:2

Set your system to Linked "Sync Mode". That is the true 1:1 people are talking about. The 680i chipset bioses I have seen are weird in this regard.

Cyant, you are a freakin' Genius!! Thanks man! I had the bios set to linked 1:1 and when I set it to linked - synch and set the proper voltages I'm now clocked at 3.2 without much experimenting so far. You have no idea how pumped I am. Thanks for your help!
