    Performance Enhance ------------------- : [Standard] 
    Extreme Memory Profile --- (X.M.P.) --- : [Disable] 
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch ---------------- : [Auto]
    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [3.0A]
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ---------------- : 800
    and maybe also
    Code:
    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.800V ------- : 1.8 or 1.9

    Surprisingly I changed the one setting to "turbo" to "STANDARD" and my PC has been running great so far.... I even left it on overnight, last night I was gaming while having multiple IM clients open and Itunes, hopefully I'm not getting fooled right now, I even benchmark it to stress it and nothing yet.

    Anyways, which is the option to run it on 800? Incase I do run into that freezing problem?

    It realy is the 3.0A multiplier but setting Performance Enhance to standard and Extreme Memory Profile to disable may also change Advanced Timing Control to more relaxed forgiving values.
    But hopefully you won't need to change it if everything works fine for you.

    I would say load optimized defaults first, but if you have more than one hard drive you may need to go to advanced settings and change hard disk boot priority, so that's up to you.
    Then set the DRAM Performance Control as I listed, leave DRAM Voltage for now, you can later check HW Monitor in BIOS to see what it is. Make sure that before you save the settings Memory Frequency does show 800, then save settings and reboot.

    Keep in mind that changing BIOS settings is a risky busines.
    If after you change settings the computer don'r start at first attempt. If it doesn't enter BIOS again, and M.I.T will show a message that there is something wrong with the settings.
    If it keep attempting to boot indefinately, turn off the PSU or pool it out of the power, wait 20 seconds and try to boot again. If it doesn't boot, do it once more, and if that doesn't work you may need to clear CMOS as explained in this post, make sure you know how to do it before you go any further.

    Not trying to scare youm just don't want to be the one who ruined your day :-)
