If you haven't already, go to the Advanced BIOS menu=>CPU Features(if I got the name wrong, it's the first one of the bottom 4)=>set C1E support to Disable.

If you have any more questions, make sure to read some of the links on the first post of this thread. I can only help with you with what I know about my system and you're gonna need to read/research on your own to get a good sense of how to find the best voltages and OCs for your system.

that H70 isnt good for massive over clock 4.1 - 4.2.... unless his ambients are awesome

I'm not too sure, but your 700W PSU might be reaching/be over it's limits, so that could be another factor limiting your OC stability. Nvidia cards are always power-hungry and you're running 6 HDDs. Maybe if you know anyone that has a spare higher wattage PSU, you can borrow it and see if it's your PSU.
That PSU he has & you have... both are good enough top run all that fine... unless he adds a 3rd card

I so want to find the limits of my CPU... I so know it's capable of so much more and I want to let it shine...
Mastiffman has some of that Bad-AZZ ram you are talking about! So want some O well my Degree is more important.......

I know exactly what you are talking about I so wish my M2N32 WS pro was not fried! I bet I could have some fun with this 965. (get some cap squeal when really pushing the volts on this board) 8 phase power FTW

Oh I'm sorry Kokin I forgot to update my sig'd PSU.

That's a pitty your board is fried.

I was thinking of getting some DDR3-1600 Mushkin Redlines 6-8-6-20 or something along those lines. Although I have to admit those OCZ's look mighty nice for a water cooled system. I wonder will they continue to support the enthusiast line of ram? They are changing their business plan and I'm not sure how ram will be effected by their new plan.

OCZ = FAIL for the most part

thats too hot and could be causing your bsod. even when you stay a couple degrees under the limit you can still run into stability problems. phenom's like cold. i dont like AMD overdrive so im gonna say that could be a problem too, imo. what speed are you trying to run your ram at? 2133 isn't gonna happen fyi. 1600-1800 is the norm, some have hit 2000 but its not often you hear about it.

Hello guys...

I Had it at a little over 4Ghz, but I got scared... I will do it over the weekend with calm.

But, right now at 3.8Ghz, I ran 3DMark Vantage, and I don't know if the score is good or not. I sent a picture.

Thx guys...

Also I changed the memory timmer.
It was 7 10 7 27 @1600Mhz
It's now 7 10 7 21 @1600Mhz

Is that better or worse?
I will try to hit some 6's
