I finally got it to work by lowering the memory speed to 1066 down from 1333. So any recommendations with my RAM and just overclocking this machine in general would be much appreciated!
Welcome to the forum.

You should expect about 3.7+Ghz on air, and you're going to need to adjust volts along with that. You should also be able to get the NB to about 2400+Mhz as well, many reaching over 2600. Again, you'll need to adjust volts to reach some of those speeds.

To get your RAM to run at speeds, you're probably going to need to set the timings and volts manually in the bios. You should be able to see some stability then at rated speeds.

I would flash the bios to 1.6 official. It seems to be the most stable bios at the moment. Just be careful.

Supposedly some people have trouble running 4 sticks at 1333MHz due to some IMCs on the Phenom II. But a few people here like Eclipse have no problem running 4 sticks of ram. You might have to raise the voltage on the DRAM and the CPU-NB to run it at that speed though.

Thanks for the advice. I'm already at 1.6 bios, that was about the first thing I did after I got my system working on 1 stick. I think I'm gonna manually set the memory to 8-8-8-21, 2T and possibly try the voltage upping and see if I can at least get stable at stock speeds! Then I'll go for some overclocking.

The more i search the more i see problems with this board and G.Skill RAM but most of them cleared up at 1.6 bios but not all.
