    ive tried tRead to 10. Also tried adding MCH voltage up to 1.34V ie try 1.26 first then 1.28V etc. and also MCH Ref down to 0.740V. no luck.. it either reboots over and over or BSOD comes up.. i feel like throwing my computer out the window!

    Most 1066 memory will not run at full rated speed when using 8GB of memory. Try these settings:

    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) .........: AUTO <-- set to 100

    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance...................: TURBO <-- set to STANDARD
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.).....: AUTO <-- set to DISABLED
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: AUTO
    System Memory Multiplier ......(SPD): AUTO <-- set to 2.40B
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 1066 <-- this will now be 800

    With 8GB, your memory might need to be under-clocked to around 1000MHz.
    If these settings prove to be stable, we can help you raise your memory speed by raising the cpu host frequency and lowering the cpu multiplier.

    **edit** Please add your hardware specs to your forum signature. This will cut down on possible errors and make it easier for us to help you.

    OMG! With everyone's help, i think i put something together thats stable for now. i still have to test it to make sure. im crossing my fingers that this doesnt crashes. this is what i have for specs. do you think i need to change anything else?

    PROFJIM: if this is stable, what would you suggest for raising memory speed by what cpu host frequency and cpu multiplier?

    Your q9550 can easily overclock to 3.90GHz. A conservative 1st step is:

    CPU Frequency ...........................: 3.40Ghz (401X8.5) <-- new system speed

    CPU Host Frequency (FSB)(Mhz) ............: 333 Mhz <-- set to 401 (not a typo)

    System Memory Multiplier ......(SPD): 2.40 <-- leave as is for now
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ...(1066)..: 962 <-- new memory speed

    CPU Vcore….……….......1.13750V..............: 1.13750V <-- this might need to increase just a bit
    CPU Termination…..... 1.200V*...............: AUTO <-- leave
    CPU PLL…………………....1.500V*...............: AUTO <-- set to 1.50

    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core…………….....1.100V...........: 1.200V <-- this might need to increase to 1.22 or 1.24
    MCH Reference….…….0.760V............: AUTO <-- leave
    MCH/DRAM Ref.…......0.900V..............: AUTO <-- leave
    ICH I/O……………….....1.500V............: AUTO <-- set to 1.50
    ICH Core…………...……1.100V...........: AUTO <-- set to 1.10

    Once this setup is stable we can go higher.
    What are your overclocking goals? Do you play games? encoding? intensive digital processing?

    Please add your hardware list to your signature.

    **edit** Are you currently running with 4GB or 8GB of memory? (note: "yes" is not a valid answer)
    What cpu heatsink/fan setup are you using?
    I'm not familiar with your "EP34-UD3R" mobo.

    I don't have a problem running as high as 1068MHz with my 8GB of 1066 RAM. I haven't tried to go further than that, though.

    I've noticed how lucky you've been with your RAM grish. Sounds like that Gskill stuff you have is top notch. Sorry to go off topic, but is it the RAM with the light blue/aqua heat spreaders (not sure on the exact description of the colour, I'm colour blind).

    That would be a yes. The only thing wrong with them is that they are UNC blue, not UK blue, but the 800MHz is too slow...

    im not looking really push my system. Im not gaming on it. Im just doing some video conversions. I dont have any good cooling system so i dont really want to overclock it yet. Im running it with 8g right now and has not crash in last 24hrs. The new specs PROFJIM suggest is for overclocking with a cooling system? Can u give me specs for something I can run with just 2 regular fans for now or should I just keep the specs I have?

    Video conversion/encoding/transcoding is an area where overclocking would help so keep the option of pushing your system open. You may want to try a mild overclock with your fsb at 400 in the future. By the way, could I trouble you to look at the sticker on your box that your quad cpu came in and see what the 1) S-spec code is and 2) the FPO/Batch#? Thank you kindly.

    A quad running near 3GHz with 8GB RAM = win for Video.

    You don't need to overclock anything then. Heck, it used to take me up to 6 hours to render an hour of video on my old single core AMD with 2GB of RAM. Now on my E8400 it takes less than 12 mins to render a one hour video, at stock settings.

    In fact, unless you get a rock solid stable over clock going, I would worry about data corruption or BSOD's during a render session...
