Edit: I've upped the CPU/nb to 1.4v but it's still unstable. Also, dram is at 1.65v, CPU is at 1.48.
The NB is idling at 62*. Is this acceptable?
Max safe CPU-NB is usually identical to the max safe CPU Vcore, so you've got a ways to go before you damage anything. You can get 16 GB stable easily, you just may not be able to do it at rated timings/frequency. Use prime95 blend to test for stability.

If your NB really is idling at 62C, you've got a problem. What's it load at?

See pic.

I have found them to be completely stable
A little higher and they become unstable with voltages on AUTO

62 C is to high for a system at idle
Run Prime 95 with PC Probe II active and if the temp's go any higher (like 70 C) its time for some repair work
I cleared the BIOS and now the NB has cooled down. It peaked at 48 under prime95 blend test.

Here is a pic of pcprobe and cpuz.

I changed the settings in my bios to match the ones you showed me except for the CPU bus freq.(so almost everything is on auto) The system is still unstable, I had workers detect hardware failures within 5 mins on a blend test. Ill try increasing NBv for now. Anything else I should try?

CPU-NB V is what you need to change most likely.

It is at 1.53v right now. Is higher than that safe, or are temps all that matter?

If you are that high you need some good cooling. That may not be the problem then. What all have you tested for stability? Or did you just try some numbers? Overclocking is a tedious process which involves working the different things up one at q time and testing them before you move on to the next.

I have two 60mm fans right on the nb. So far, Ive used prime95 for testing, but it always gives errors within a few mins. Other than that, i know it isnt stable because things crash or bsod a lot.

have you tried increasing NB voltage to 1.3v - 1.35v?

Indeed. NBv is at 1.35 right now. Ive been running a blend test on prime95 for the last 15 mins with no issues smile.gif

edit: FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.49609375, expected less than 0.4
If I loosened ram timing, could that help? Or would I be better off with less ram?

here is a shot of pcprobe
If you hav'nt run microsoft mem check then do so
http://www.memtest86.com/
http://www.memtest.org/

You might try --- 9-10-9-28

You might try ----- NBv is at 1.38 -- keep eye on temps [will prime run longer]

or you might try setting your memory freq. 1333 mhz

with 16 GB of mem work down to some thing that is stable and start up from there
20-30 minute of prime blend is good place to start back up

use memory cooling ?

g.skill tech forum maybe better with getting 16 gb of mem to run

I have run both of those tests. I will try your timings next.
