    ok, well I seem to have found the issue. after a quick call to OCZ tech support in a little bit of a facepalm moment, i read my mobo specifications again to see:
    # Support for DDR3 2100+/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules

    is 1600 simply not supported? I originally thought the 2100 listed meant i could be safe anywhere up to there...

    alas, ill just shoot for 1333 i suppose. a 166 bclk will give 1328 (closest i can think) and a modest ~3.5 OC which I can be happy with.

    any other ideas?

    That's silly. I'm running my OCZ memory at 1600 MHz ... 8 x 200 BCLK. Works fine. The "steps" in the specs are arbitrary, and may or may not be achieved exactly if you overclock; it all depends on your settings.

    Interesting I thought it was a bit funny but I also thought it would make sense.
    Any chance I could bother you to post your MIT bios settings. I'd be interested to try using them as a template and move from there

    thanks
