    What CPU Cooler?
    Depanding on your CPU you should be able to OC 3.8-4GHz, more if you're lucky.
    Where you want to begin?

    Run memtest96+ before you boot windows.
    In windows run 6+ hours Prime95 blend test.

    Typo, memtest86+, they have an installer for a bootable USB flash-drive on their site.

    Seems so, did you set MCH Core and DRAM Voltage as suggested?
    Try to run the memory at 1066 with default FSB and see if it pass. MCH Core 1.16-1.24v

    FSB to 333mhz
    MCH freq to 333mhz
    Memory Multi to 3.20B
    MCH Core to 1.180V

    and it came up with an unexpected halt.



    Trying settings
    FSB to 333mhz
    MCH freq to auto
    Memory Multi to auto
    MCH Core to 1.180V

    Are the screen captures from post @1 made with optimized defaults?
    Can you add a screen capture of EasyTune -> Tuner -> Advanced -> Voltage tab, with those settings if you have EasyTune installed?
