    I agree, 8GB is just not going to run at 1066 without crazy voltages, best to try for 800-1000

    For 8GB you may need to use 1.24-1.3 MCH Core

    Cheers for replies (I know I still need to update my signature).

    Tried 4gb @ 1066 and it ran ok, but with 8GB would not boot, as you have stated will cause issues.

    Running 8GB at 800mhz and been running ok all day today, will get a more detailed update with setting tomorrow/Wednesday.

    Cheers

    Ya, I would actually start with 800-900 maybe for 8GB, like you have. Then once you get it stable that way you could try more.

    Good luck tweaking and post back anytime once you get time and if you need more help

    Thanks for all of the input so far, its seems to have improved the stability of the system.

    Since Monday I have had no BSOD and the machine has been entering sleep and waking up with sucess. I have also upped the processor speed. I didnt manage to get the memory running @ 1066 with 8GB (4GB worked) so I worked on the timings.

    I assume running as these timings settings is better than stock? How does the rest of the settings look?

    Still need to let Prime run over night, but have used machine normaly with know problems.

    Cheers all.

    Can you please post a screen capture of CPU-Z CPU tab, and also one of EasyTune -> Tuner -> advanced > Voltage tab?
    There no E6700 quad processor AFAIK.
    Timings look ok, check what Performance Level MeSet show, you may be able to set it as low as 5 (Static tRead Value in BIOS).
    Have you tried higher MCH Core for DDR-1066? also try to set Driving Strength 1066 for both channels, and more DRAM Voltage.
    What are the load core temperatures for current OC?

    The attechment in post #16 doesn't show.
    Voltages look alrigh. PLL may not be needed that high but it's in the safe zone for 65nm processor I think.
    What is the CPU VID? (the default value shown in BIOS).

    Thanks for pointers once again.

    PLL is set to AUTO which says 1.5 in BIOS, do I need to change it?
    CPU VID BIOS (V core) set to 1.375 and CPUZ shows - 1.344V (is that the setting I'm checking?)

    Right things are looking good I have been playing with settings and have settled on the following. If its stable and you guys thinks its looks good I will run with this and not push it any further. My knowledge has improved thanks to each one of you providing input.

    Is this a high overclock? It's fast enough for what I'm doing and I like havnig a stable machine more than out right speed.

    VID is the default voltage of the CPU for stock settings. It is shown in BIOS left to the value you set, or you can make a text dump with CPU-Z it'll be there too. CoreTemp show VID in it's main window, the new RealTemp has it too in it's prefs.
    You can try to set PLL a bit lower 1.57-1.6v.
    Setting CPU Termonation manually is recommended, you can set it target value in EasyTune.
    Did you have to increase MCH Core to 1.3v? Make sure there is enough air flow around the northbridge to keep it cool (so to speak it is always hot).

    Have you ran any stress tests? What are load core temps?

    Haven't figured out what processor you have. Is it Q6700 quad or E6700 duo.
