Ya.. I noticed my overclock was stable in Prime95 but would BSOD after like an hour in a game (so im going to test using Orthos). I took the speed of the ram down using a different ratio (4:5) this time so my memory is clocked slightly above 800 but is now using tighter timings and I am still clocked at 3.0Ghz on the CPU
It stopped the BSOD's in the games so hopefully now it will pass Orthos... if so... perhaps I did not hit my CPU's limit and the memory was just clocked to high before and now I can push on to 3.2Ghz or better on 1.4v
