    What am wondering must you have FSB OverVoltage Control to +0.1v for it to work?
    What revision is your board?

    70C is ok, and would not cause this or any similar issues.

    Can you get the BSOD Code from the BSOD Screen next time it happens and then I can better find out if it is a software/driver issue. The code I want would look similar to this >> 0x000000

    If the BSOD Screen goes by to fast you can disable the automatic restart so the screen will stay up until you manually reboot. To do that go to control panel, system, advanced tab, then startup and recovery settings button, then in the new window in the system failure tab Uncheck Automatically restart
    I made some changes to my computer. I have brought it up to 2.88ghz with Cpu clock multiplier. Hvent noticed any bsod for days now(might have been something else).

    One thing that still worries me. Cpu temp passes 70 after 2 minutes.

    Well I would still advise the same/similar settings for most of those Auto's as I posted for you in Post #8. All those Auto's is not the best for performance, and may also cause you issues.

    I would at the very least set the main timings, and the voltages manually. The Advanced timings you can leave on Auto if you don't want to mess with them for now, but keep in mind it will not be the best for performance

    Your Temps may be due to you using Auto for voltages, Auto generally overvolts things often way more then needed. So you should start by looking in CPU-z to see what Auto CPU voltage is giving you and then go manually set that in the BIOS and slowly lower it

    If you are using the stock cooler, you can't expect much from those so you may always see high temps when overclocked
