If I install them in seperate channels, will it still be 4gb (or whatever Windows recognizes) just not running dual channel? Is there a downside to not running dual channel if it still utilizes all available memory?
You'll have less memory bandwidth. In most case you won't even notive the difference in performance.

I've seen bad sticks pass memtest86. I've had memory at settings that pass memtest, but fail to boot windows. Don't stop at memtest. You really can't trust any one app to warrant a stable config. Use multiple tests to ensure the most stabilty.

Dual channel is quicker then single channel, but you really only notice it in benchmarking.

I also posted a few pages back that with only one stick installed (tried it with each one) it passes IBT no problems. However, like miloshs and glussier suggested, running 1/2 stress seems to work since it keeps the memory used for stress testing under 2gigs for the 32-bit version of IBT.

If I install them in seperate channels, will it still be 4gb (or whatever Windows recognizes) just not running dual channel? Is there a downside to not running dual channel if it still utilizes all available memory?
How many passes did each memory stick go through on memtest? You should do 4 or 5 passes on each stick. This way you have a lot better chance of finding an instability.

Also Pizzaman is correct testing your memory with more than one app is recommended to cover all of your bases.

Each stick had 10 passes on them.

It's passed 10 iterations of IBT and a 2hr OCCT, currently it's on a blended run of orthos and will be overnight....provided it keeps running. I'll see how it plays out. If it doesn't pass I will try seperating the channels, or running orthos with each stick individually to see if one or the other fails.

I really appreciate all the tips and ideas. I'm learning alot, but there is one steep learning curve to effectively OC

So I got all the way to 3.75 ghz on 1.232 cpuz volts, but whatever I do to the voltage, I just can't get the fsb higher. I know I can go faster though! I'll fiddle around tomorrow.

Try adding FSB or VTT voltage.

3.75GHz at 1.232V?! Are you sure, thats like running stock volts at 3.7GHz....
If it is... its a good one...

I was reading in the intel E5000 series specs that the max cpu recommended cpu vtt (fsb termination voltage) was 1.26v. Then absolute max was 1.45v. What do you suggest I keep it under I haven't really messed with it yet but am going to up it to see if I can't gain some stability?

I doubt very much that his processor is stable running occct, prime95 or 10 loops of ibt. We never saw a screen shot confirming that his cpu was stable at that clock speed.
