^^ This...5ghz is out of the question...aim for 4.4 and 4.5ghz and see if you can get that, its gonna take you a long time though with all that tweaking...good luck with it, PM me if you need any help with it.

Also you can try slowing your ram freq. sometimes it helps

Some weird stuff has been happening to windows since I started messin around with the BIOS. For one thing, the WEI doesn't work anymore -- and it still did after my first attempts at OC'ing.

Thanks for the input, I'll definitely give it a shot. I'm just a little frustrated because I had it past four ghz before with the stock cooler and temps seemed fine, then I bought my H50 thinking that I could aim considerably higher with it. Oh well.

I read something akin to that elsewhere; but why?

No idea, the fact that it's a closed system? Mediocre radiator or pump?

I've never used one, so I don't know, but a Venomous X or similar out performs it. To put it in perspective, my i7 loads at 42C in Prime95.

So you know you can get some major instability after about 55C and the max safe temp for these chips is more like 62C.

I know everyone else has said this but try 1.5v on the cpu and like 1.3v-1.4v for the cpu/nb. Don't go above 1.55v on the cpu on air, and push your NB clock to like 2.5ghz or more it should help with stability.
You could also try a combo of a fsb OC with mult to get higher clocks, and make sure your hyper transporter is around 2ghz +or- 100mhz

The h50 rad can not compare to a custom loop or kit.

That's not the point, the point is that it'd load over 50C with a H50.
