    Its Cool man. Got to keep me on my Toes.

    EDIT: I will give it another 10 Minutes and then Ill go back to the BIOS and back off some stuff I just changed One at a Time and see which is the one thats the cause. It hasnt ever gotten this far in Prime off stock settings. My bet is the FSB volts.

    SUPER EDIT: I Spoke to soon. Dammit. Hey atleast its not a Hard lock.

    Ya know what, I do see issues posted more often than one would think by users who are using the .5 multi's and after seeing how even multi's in 1366 can have adverse effects as well I see/understand how Multi value can indeed have a pos/neg affect.

    I think using .5 multi can cause issues, try not using it and see if things improve any or not.

    I'd also advise GTL_Ref''s on Auto, and ram voltage manually set per spec, if spec is 1.8V then set the first one you have option to use

    Well I have tried it with just 8X Multi but not with these settings. The Errors happen with the XMS2 installed. And I have set the vdimm to 2.1v as per specs. Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK - Desktop Memory
    I will put the GTL refs back on auto. and Multi to 8 and up the Vcore a bit and run again.

    Sounds good, I just commented about the ram voltage because you had auto listed above is all. I am sure you set it anyway, but just wanted to be sure

    Ahh very observant. I Missed it. But they are set manually to 0.3+ which is pink.

    EDIT: Running again now on new settings also I changed FSB to 401 just for the hell of it.

    SUPER EDIT: Na Crapped out already on 8X401 @1.3vcore What next

    Try .2 FSB and .25 MCH, and possible Vcore bump (I always set vcore very high to rule out, then lower later)

    Ok running again. LSD also it crapped out @ 400X7 which is really underclocked? Also This is the Board that took my E8500 to 24/7 Stable 3.8Ghz with totally stock volts across the whole board.

    EDIT: Nup Crapped out already.

    Hmm, maybe that is the issue. Stop underclocking and try overclocking again instead.
