    Can you post your system specs? A bios update may help this...

    Asus motherboards are very picky when it come to memory types and speeds. Try raising the memory voltage just a step or two and see if the system stabilizes. I have an ABIT motherboard with a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU rated at 2.4GHz running at 3.4GHz. I raised the CPU voltage and the DDR voltage just 2 steps to get this stable increase in speeds

    sorry for double post my crosshair from asus is rubbish lol i was thinking awile back to upgrade it as ASUS dont support my motherboard with lets say windows 7 :/ ,, " and they dont really care about updating the crosshair at all :| ,,

    anyways look on the bios very own voltage monitoring and it says

    DDR2 Voltage 1.87V = " i noticed alot of peeps say for my memory not to go over 1.2 v " i can evan see the option to change that :D

    CPU Voltage is 1.29V = " thats greyed out and no matter what i choose its still greyed out "

    so am all confused now :D

    You have to click on the auto setting line and turn them to manual or user settings. My memory is set at 1.82v so if you can lower that voltage a bit. The CPU voltage should be okay
