However, when I run the Small FFT's test, it runs fine. Does this mean that my RAM is unstable at its rated speeds? Also, it is at 3v. Any tips would be great!
Holy Crap! 3v???? Why? I have the same RAM with the same overclock and my RAM is at 2.6v. 3v???? Holy crap dude. I have 250 x 10 with HTT at 4x. (make sure your HTT is 4x otherwise you will be unstable, 4x250=1000)Memory is at 3-4-4-8 DDR500 2.6v. vCore on the CPU is stock at 1.4v. I am stable in Prime, SuperPi 32M, OCCT, all 3dMark tests, etc. Lower that RAM voltage to 2.6v or 2.7v, better yet leave it on auto as that where mine is. You do not need 3v on that memory in fact I have read many times that this RAM functions best between 2.6 and 2.8. See if that helps.
