    BSOD 0x00000101 is Vcore, just in case you run into that as well.
    I increased the FSB Voltage eventually to +0.3 but running Prime still gives me the bluescreen. It is weird because before when I was at 3.82 (by just increasing the FSB and Vcore), I would not get a bluescreen but only crashes in Prime.

    i've attached a printscreen of the BSOD:

    Hmm, give me your full exact settings you are now trying, in a template and I will see if I can help.

    You may need to use a looser tRD or a bit more MCH/Vcore as wel, generally though this is Vtt

    thanks for you reply I will try this as soon as I get the chance. One question though, I think I can increase the FSB Overvoltage but isnt this kinda dangerous or am I in the safezone still ?

    What BSOD did you get, what code shows on the left/middle of the screen? Looks like this 0x00000101, or would be show in windows 7 or vista after a reboot in a dialog showing the last 3 numbers.

    the bluescreen itself I tend to miss because Im was not behind my pc when testing it with PRime. However, Windows 7 gave me a message after reboot, BSOD 124

    That's all you need, it is 0x00000124 is Vtt (CPU Term)

    Do have FSB Overvoltage control AND FSB DE-Overvoltage control? If so try setting that DE-overvoltage option for this setting to +0.1-0.3. Some boards have this and some do not, and I am not fully sure why they have that though, since there is already a CPU Term setting above there?

    Maybe one is now FSB/Vtt and one is CPU Termination? I would imagine +0.4 is not good, and you said it didn't help so not sure what to try next since that is what causes this BSOD.

    Did you ever test with higher Vcore to rule that out as well? If not please do sometime, try 1.42-1.44, rarely this 124 error can be Vcore

    It may just be this board is not happy with 8GB above 1066Mhz, have you tried using 2.40B multi at all for 1080Mhz?

    Salty began tweaking GTLREFs above 430MHz FSB and never had the need for more than +0.2 FSB OverVoltage, and +0.25 MCH OverVoltage.

    Don't try his ram voltage it's a DDR2 board/
    Ctrl+F1 at main BIOS screen should reveal the GTLREFs in MIT.

    EDIT: Also use the 2.66D and tRD 10 until you get this sorted.
