Re: ASUS issue
you need to drop your ram speed to ddr2 677.
drop the HT multiplier to 4. when you get past 250mhz, you will need to drop it to 3.
probably before then you will need to drop your ram speed to 533.
as a matter of fact, i'd drop the ht to 3 and the ram to 533 to begin with and eliminate that from your stability issues.
that way you can max cpu/mobo nad not have to worry about ram or HT giving you problems. then overclock them later after you work out your cpu.
you may up the core voltage one notch also.
award-winning it may be, but that mobo/chipset is known to be a pretty weak overclocker. ehich is odd, because asus usually makes stellar overclocking hardware. my 8800gt doesnt OC all that well (not that it needs to). go figure.
