    I'm guessing the system health monitors are disabled, so that they are not sensing temps wrong and shutting down? No other monitoring apps set to shutdown for any reason?

    Are you posistive the CPU is not overheating, you have a flow indicator?

    What make/model PSU are we talking about here, is it powered through a UPS?

    possibly incompatible ram ? OCZ brand might be picky ? try different brand of ram for compatible to test if it works.

    also need check with PSU and reading +12v should least 12.xx

    It's a Thermaltake Toughpower 750 watt PSU, and yes, it's plugged into a UPS...
    Pumps flowing well, and I've used several apps to monitor temps...
    BIOS C1 and other de-clocking/thermal regulating options are off...

    I've tried other OCZ RAM modules, but not a different make...but I'm pretty sure the board is compatible. My P5N32-E was a ***** with RAM in comparison...

    Do you really think a UPS could cause issues?

    Absolutely, it can... I had the exact same problem with my Q6600, overclocked to 3.4GHz, with eh GA-EP45-UD3R.

    My OC seemed stable until I'd start running IntelBurnTest... I'd hear a beep and then the system would go lights-out. I assumed the beep was coming from the computer, but it was actually coming from my 500VA APC UPS.

    Once I plugged the computer straight into the wall I could run IBT w/o it failing.

    It's not the VA that matters it's the wattage rating, that is how much draw it can supply. VA is associated with battery capacity.

    Update: New PSU, and all is good! Bought a OCZ 700Watt GameXStream SLI...
    Works good, but the fan is always spinning fast enough to be heard...annoying.
    Also, when I ramp it up to 3.6Ghz, it doesn't like rebooting...
    Will go into the power off/startup loop for a few times, then load BIOS defaults. Damn!!
    Sometimes works though...
    But at 3.45Ghz, there isn't any issues restarting...weird.

    When I boot at 3.6Ghz, and run Prime95, solid for 40 minutes before I stopped it...
    MUCH improved! And no shutting off!

    I also added 2 more modules, up to 4 X 1GB OCZ FlexXLC 1150Mhz running at 1200Mhz no problem....
    SWEETNESS!!
