    I'll go ahead and set the RAM stuff first (command and timings).

    Thanks for the BIOS pics, it appears that the board is indeed missing a fe voltage settings, but they're the ones you never change so it doesn't matter.

    Comannd thingie on auto is fine btw.

    The "flashing" is not problem, I mean the RAM is made for that much voltage. I just look at as a sign that I've got that setting right ;-)
    You can leave the RAM timings on auto for the moment, they don't bring no noticeable performance for Core 2 anyway to be honest. You can emasure but, it's too small to notice.

    What PSU do you have btw? I just checked the settings and they seem fine, except that you should disable X.M.P. so I think the problem may lie somewhere else. A cheap PSU may be fine for stock settings but may keep you from overclocking.

    PSU is OCZ Stealth Stream 500W. I think its decent quality.

    Yep, OCZ is decent.

    Try bumping up CPU termiantion by 0.1V.

    Hmm tried that no luck. Mostly it'll get stuck in a reboot loop with the fan speed going fast then slow then reboot for a while before it finally POSTs and the settings are normal. I think it may have something to do with RAM settings as when I changed them to 4-4-4-15 and 2.2V it wouldn't POST but at 5-5-5-18 and 1.8V it works ok. But when I did that I didn't get the overclocking/voltage warning, that only happened when I changed the FSB/voltages...

    You can also try increasing CPU PLL to 1.65v maybe that helps.

    As you've probably noticed, overclocking is a lot of trial and error and while I might be able to reach a certain overclock with all the baord voltages at stock you may not, and now I'm telling you to raise them one by one to find the one that is missing.

    If the problem is the RAM then it's not in the primary timings, 4-4-4-15 at DDR2 800 is nothing special really. You can go to advanced timings though and increase static tRead to 9 or 10 for both channels and see if that helps.
