    Default Over Clocking a EX58-EXTREME with a i7 920 Issues...

    Hey all, new the forums. I recently bought an EX58-EXTREME mobo and a i7 920 along with 6 GB of Corsair XMS3 Dominator DDR3-1600. My plan was to Over clock the 920 to atleast 3.6 Ghz, now i can do this for a few days and it works fine. Even ran Prime95 and memtest for a few hours and it seemed fine. But after a few days i get a BOSD and my pc shuts down. I go into the bios and it says it has reverted or something like that to default settings do to an overclock or changed voltages. I've even had it sometimes give me a check sum error on boot and i had to use the recovery thing to restore my bios back to version F4 (running version F7 right now). Now i have looked over the forums and see what i should have my bios set to to get this kind of over clock and i thought i was right but my questions is: what are the best settings to have my EX58-EXTREME bios set to to get an over clock of 3.6 Ghz on a i7 920 and keep it stable?. Also heat is not an problem as my temps rarely go over 40C.

    What BIOS are you using? From the looks of it your memory may have issues. Trying running your memory @ 1600 with CPU at the default 2.66 GHz speed.

    Run some tests on the memory @1600 MHz and CPu @ 2.66 GHz.

    Prime95v.25.9 build 4 (32bit) /Prime95v.25.9 build 4 (64bit)
    OCCT 3.1.0
    Memtest86+ v2.11.iso

    All availble here :

    If you fail with these tests then your memory is a concern.

    narrowing down the issue is critical here.

    using F7 right now for my bios. the ram runs fine at 1600MHz at stock CPU speeds and i have run memtest for hours on end with no errors. also no issues when running prime95 at stock speeds.
