Ehm,memtest.55 is not that hot,ok it is but what voltages have you got?arent they too much or too low for the overclock you have?Run memtest for a couple of hours and see the temps and see if you get any errors.

ive been running this setup for about 2 weeks straight hours of non stop gaming with room temperatures up to the 90's and its never once had a problem not one. But it did last night in like a 60degree room and all my other temps were good. I havnt gotten a chance to stress test it since because im at work but i got temp probes in 2 places on my ram now ill give it a shot when i get home

That's not a stress test. Download IntelBurnTest and watch your temps when you fire it up.

Well with 8 gigs of ram your going to have to push major voltages into the nb to keep it at 1066 or if not it will down clock all the sticks to 800 mhz due to the fact that all your dim slots are used and being put pressure on,when u oc try to use 4 gigs of ram i bet you get a better over clock.

 

tho on 8 gigs of ram i was able to clock it to 1062 stable for 1 year at 3.76 then after a bios updated it was not stable no more for some odd reason
