Have you lowered your "LDT" multi or whatever it is called? It is likely at 5 for stock settings, and you probably should have it set at 2-3.

update your bios, it fixed all of my problems.
edit: pretty sure those instructions above are for a quad, im not sure if its the same for a duo though.

You should also be fine leaving te GTL lanes on auto with a dual core. If you do play with them this is what I've read. On a dual core, lanes 0 and 2 are linked to core 0 and lanes 1 and 4 and linked to core 1. If core 0 is the culprit for errors raise lane 0 and 2 to 50 and test. Then continue to raise them +5.
Also, make sure you have your ram under clocked while you and testing for a stable CPU OC.
