also, make sure that you're running less than 800MHz or @ 800 MHz when you set 3.4GHz in.

This way you don't overclock the RAM either.

Since its unlinked it doesnt matter, just Dont OC your ram and CPU at the same time. Your ram would need to be running at at least 800mhz to boot at 3.6 for example.

You should try increasing the voltage to your chipset to OC past 3.2ghz. I think your Bios calls it nvidia SPP or something. Also disable C1E

I really want some help to revive mine as well. It takes me exactly:

You might be more limited by your PSU.

OP I just noticed you have mis-matched memory. That will definitely limit your ability to reach a high OC. Try taking some memory out and then OC higher.

Brands matter? I though it was irrelevant as long as it ran at the same speed.

Yeah I have C1E disabled from the start. How can I increase voltage of chipset? I believe I have it set at 1.4 which is maxed already.

Please ignore the voltages in this picture it's just for ref. Do I increase the nForce SPP?

Wait what!? I have the SLI Memory kit

RAM: OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel DDR2 800 4GB 2 x 2GB

How can they be mismatched?

Your sig says you have Gskill and OCZ memory for a total of 8 gigs.

Increase the nforce SPP voltage = chipset voltage

Try running with your memory in linked mode instead of unlinked. If you can boot at 400X9 (3.6ghz) then your memory will run at the proper speed anyway.
