Keep in mind that you are 1 full Ghz above rated speed on your CPU. The fact that you are coming back to stock speed and having no problems tells me that maybe you're a little aggressive on what you are asking to get out of your e6750. Try coming down for awhile to 3 Ghz. If you're having no problems for a week or so at that speed, inch yourself upward.
From my experience, Overclocking is definitely more of an art than a science....
I know I'm pushing it pretty far, but I get the weird instability problems if I adjust the memory speed (higher or lower) without increasing the voltage even with the CPU at stock speed.
I just got a reply back from OCZ about my ram, and it appears that 2.1V
and 5-5-5-15 are the proper settings. I have no idea why I can't get it to work when I manually set it to +0.3v. It works fine when the motherboard automatically sets the voltage.
I can't find a single program that will show me the dimm voltage for this motherboard.
Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll keep cracking at this.
