Higher end motherboards tend to come with more flexibility, and with that, more things to go wrong. Remember that PCI-E and RAM clocks scale with the FSB, a 15% increase in PCI-E clock would probably cause a LOT of instability, and most RAM can't handle a 15% OC without extra volts.

So, to do list, lock PCI-E clock at 100MHz, and make sure RAM is within limits by changing the multiplier.

Oh yeah, post your system, so we know what parts we are working with.

OK I filled out the My System page if all goes to plan my PC's particulars should be under this. I have no idea whatsoever about memory timings or toying with the ram in any way, so I'm going to go do some reading up on the subject right now. The PCI-E clock is already locked at 100Mhz.

Check the CPU-Z voltages, some boards have more VDrop and/or VDroop than others, also, the P45 MCH is a tough one, some times, more voltage is good, others, less voltage is good, so try adjusting the VMCH. I'd personally try setting all the voltages to manual at the number beside them, and try OCing from there.

I checked the CPU-Z volts (1.296V-1.312V) VS what is set in the bios (1.375V) I thought i was pushing it going to 1.375. Should i try giving it some more juice? Also i tried fiddling with the timings and voltage of the ram but i just cant move it anywhere, anything beyond 6-6-6-18 it just wont post. I tried going to 5-5-5-16 and upping the volts from 1.8V to 1.9v and a miriad of variations all around there, anything lower than 6-6-6-18 and it fails to post. Have I neglected to supply any vital stats?

Wow, that's some slow RAM, 6-6-6-18. Well, make sure it is under/at 800Mhz, and don't OC it. What voltage were you at before you changed the motherboard? Follow that as a guideline. And that is some serious VDrop/VDroop, see if upping the voltage would change it, if not, try clearing the CMOS. Then there's FSB termination voltage, the higher it is, the higher FSB you can use, though, don't surpass 1.45V.

I never touched the volts on my old board i just upped the multiplier and FSB and BAM got 4.15Ghz, I LOL'd and turned it down to 3.25ish and it ran beautifully for 4 months or so. The only reason i got rid of the old board was cause it had a hissy fit every time i tried plugging in more than 1 IDE device at one time.

Also i have two settings relating to the RAM.

(G) MCH Frequency Latch
and
System Memory Multiplier.

Are they relevant to my situation? If so where should these settings be?

System Memory Multiplier.

That is the multiplier I'm talking about, there should be a number below or before your timings or something (I need to check where it is located, but it is grayed out), saying "Memory Frequency", keep that under 800. However, I suggest you setting your RAM multiplier to 2.00D first, and then try OCing.

OK, will do, so i want the Memory frequency as close to 800 without going over? Going over will cause instability?

It might not cause instability, but you only want to OC one component at a time. That way you know which area you need to tweak for stability.

Short answer, yes, long answer, depends.

Since you don't have good RAM for OCing, then definitely yes. However, if you had like G.Skill DDR2 800 RAM or Mushkins, then it would be much better for OCing.
