    I popped off the heatsink, cleaned it, and replaced the thermal paste. I then set your recommend settings, and with MemTest86+ running for 20 or so minutes, I can put me finger on the heatsink for 8 or so seconds before pulling it off.

    Thanks for all the info, I'll let you know how it goes.

    K, And you can get a 40MM fan for under 5$ so just keep that in mind as well

    Well, after setting the following in my BIOS..

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [400]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 4
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 4
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______4
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 12
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 11
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 3
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 62
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3
    Static tRead Value_______________ 8
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ Auto

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V]

    I ran MemTest86+ for a few hours, no errors, and then ran the two tests you recommend at 2 or so hours each, no errors.

    Got back into Windows, ran ORTHOS for a few hours, no problems. Stopped it, came back and my PC was at the 0x0000000A blue screen, and when I rebooted it got "BIOS auto-recovering from hard drive, rebooted 4-5 times, and then it came back up with the BIOS reset to what it was before I set those settings above..

    I don't get why the BIOS keeps getting lost, this is what happened on the first board but it never recovered. Luckily this one keeps recovering (knock on wood)

    Hmmm that isnt good! I know you will hate to hear it but I would say it is the crucials. They USED to be the best but by far are not anymore. And die often when overclocked, underclocked or undervolted. So you just never know

    Wish I had some more suggestions for you, those settings look good I cant think of any other reason it would fail like that other then the memory....Which yoiu just tested and found it to be ok??????

    You have a good PSU right?

    What do you recommend for memory? At this point, I just want a stable machine and, to be honest, when I purchased the memory I didn't do too much research.

    I'll pickup whatever you recommend. I would like to have 4GB though, and still be able to OC my CPU.

    Sorry, forgot to mention.. I do have a nice PSU.. it's the following PSU.

    Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply 90 - 264 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Power Supplies

    Hopefully my local Fry's will have the memory you recommend so I can just go out and pick it up.

    Thanks for all your help. :)

    Well I use Mushkins in both of my GA boards and have used them in other GA boards in the past with no issues. G.Skills also work great in GA boards. If you get Mushkins get HP or XP sets, Blue (HP) or Black (XP)

    If you bought your crucials at newegg and it has been less then 30 days you can get a refund -15%. if not I suppose you could just ebay them

    Just my luck.. TigerDirect doesn't sell either brand, and they have a local store where I could pick some up today.

    Hate to be a pain.. but do you have any opinions on Corsair, Kingston, OCZ.. trying to stay local so I can get something today, but I can always order via Newegg if it came down to it, and just pay the extra shipping to get it here tomorrow.
