If you post us your bios settings and voltages it'd help alot mate. But have you tried lowering your htt? and also u could try uping the vcore up a bit and adding a devider for your ram.

well isn't 2.6v stock?

If it is your not gonna be able to overclock that memory much with stock voltage, so you probably have to set a memory divider

these settings will be for 2,900mhz. Your memory should boot fine also...

290 x 10
HTT x 3
VID+VID special = 1.425+110% (1.568)
Memory timings 2.5-3-3-7
CPC enabled (1T)
Memory voltage 2.7-2.8
Memory divider 150

If this doesn't work, just lower your FSB (290) to say 280. Leave everything else the same..
