First off do you have any stability testing programs that you are using? What is the vid on your cpu? If you can boot into windows without having to change your voltage then I would suggest running a stability program such as Prime95 then adjust voltage as needed.

It's stable right now at stock. I have not yet tried to overclock. I am planning on doing that tomorrow, or when I have time.

...but, thanks for the help!

If you do an overclock and get the "blue screen of death" do you just reboot and change things back in the bios or do you have to do something else to fix it??

Sometimes you can't get back into the BIOS so you need to take out the battery on your motherboard (after you've unpluged it of course) and wait for about 2 minutes then put in back in.

Actually, all you have todo is pull out the CMOS jumper so you dont loose the BIOS time and what not. And from expirence, BSOD isnt just voltage. MAKE SURE THAT SPEEDSTEP IS ACTIVELY DISABLED, NOT JUST SAYING THAT IT IS BUT REALLY ISNT. Fizxing that problem, solved my BSOD errors. I have also gotten my VCORE down to about 1.25... so thats pretty good i guess
