    It looks as if the board sets everything on auto even when you set it manually.
    Could you bott with everything on auto and Prformance Enhance standard and post CPU-Z memory and spd tabs again?

    Yes, as expected the DDR-1066 are scaled DDR-800 timings as BIOS would do it automatically.
    Something must be done about BIOS before you continue overclocking. If it alter one setting it may as well alter others.
    I'd try clearing CMOS. On how to clear CMOS you can read at the second part of this post. Also look at the manual if you can't locate the CLR_CMOS jumper, it's different to every board.

    yep rams at 1066 and cpu is running at 3.2 i've been playing my game for the last hour with no bsod before it was 10mins max. im not sure what was wrong with the ram but i think my problem before that was not enough voltage but using lsdmeasap's guide with the voltage everything seems stable.
    i think i'll try to push my cpu for 3.6 and maybe push the ram a little

    Keep an eye on core temps don't let them go too high.

    I wouldn't recommend trying to overclock RAM right away. It's the one thing that will cause the most problems compared to the actual benefits.

    A good starting point for 3.6GHz would be 400*9 with a 2.66(C/D) RAM multi.
    Coolermaster CM 690 II advance Case
    Corsair HX750 (CWT, 91%(80+ Gold rated @230V) single 62A 12V rail
    P55A-UD4 v2.0 @ F14
    Core i5 760 @ 20 x 201, 4.02GHz
    TRUE Black with a single Noctua NF-P12 pumping out 55 CFM @ 19db .
    2 x 2GB Mushkin Ridgeback (996902), @ 7-10-8-27, 2010-DDR, 1.66v
    2 x Gigabyte GTX 460 1024MB in SLI (Pre OC'd to 715MHz core and 1800MHz VRAM) @ 850 Core / 4100 Mem.
    Intel X25-M Boot Drive (OS and Programs) 200MB/s Read & 90MB/s Write
    Corsair X32 200MB/s Read & 100MB/s Write
    WD Caviar Blue 640GB C (Steam, Games, Storage, Temp Files & Folders, etc)
    Samsung F3 500GB Backup/Images
    Noctua 1300RPM 19dB case fan (rear extraction)
    3 x 140 MM Coolermaster LED fans (one front intake, one top extraction, one side intake)
    Dell Ultra Sharp 2209WAf E-IPS @ 1680x1050

    i tired your settings psycho and my pc did post but as it was about to load windows the screen went black and the first line was

    Trap 0000FB63=================exception================ ==

    below this was lots of differnt codes so i had to reset then i set it at
    CPU 378=3.4ghz
    2.66c=1008
    this caused a bsod 0x000000124 when it was loading windows. im guessing both problems are the same as my intial problem of my voltages being to low. i just want to check that if i push my voltages to even the highest in lsdmeasap guide on the first page it wont potentially damage anything? i'll increase them a bit at a time but i dont want to damage my pc when i seem to have a stable oc at 3.2 just to squeeze a bit more juice out of it

    Good luck with the tweaking and testing, glad to see you got your memory timings issue sorted.

    0x00000124 means you need more Vtt (CPU Termination)

    Not sure which guide you are referring to about voltages, but if your temps are good then you can use up to 1.45-1.5 actual
