    Will try that when i get home from work. It seems like there is some issues in running dual channel mode what so ever now.
    I tried my old kits yesterday(which has worked before) and then i got the same problems the first two boots or so. Then i got it working by just rebooting it, played BFBC2 for a while and turned the computer off.
    Tried starting it again resulting in the same crashes as before
    I'm banging my head against a brick wall here
    Your help is great though. Feels nice to have some support out there.

    With 8GB of memory you probably will need:
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control = +0.20
    FSB OverVoltage Control = +0.10
    Refresh to ACT Delay = 60

    Please post the ET5 --> Overclocking --> Advanced Mode display which will show some applied voltages.

    That worked like a charm!!!
    One reboot and everything started like it's supposed to.
    Thanks all of you for the help. I would never have managed this on my own.

    Great to here!!

    Please do run several stability tests though, I am sure you still need to do a little bit of tweaking to get things stable.

    Once you get testing done and are stable please post your settings for others in the future. And of course if you have troubles getting things stable let us know and we will help you figure it out.
