Default Overclocking memory

When I try to overclock my memory, my motherboard won't let me boot into windows. I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right, but after POST I get a message that says my computer is now running in safe mode and I need to change my hardware speeds and voltages back to default speeds. Has anyone else encountered this problem on motherboards like mine? My specs are in the sig.

EVGA 780i Motherboard
2gb OCZ Reaper 900mhz 4-4-4-12
EVGA 8800gts 512mb 800/1080
2x Western Digital 250gb SATAII Raid0
Antec 850w PSU
Antec 900 Case
3DMark06 - 15544

Did you set the voltage correctly on the memory? The board probably has it set to 1.8v which i'm guessing is too low for reapers.

Nothing to see here.

Hey Phoenix , Got the same RAM as you ...
If you have an ECC board then boot at 4-3-3-15, if you don't 4-4-4-15...
The RAM should get 2.0V for RAM voltage , hope that helps...
