Is this your CPU?
AMD Phenom™ II X4 965BE

Need to verify the CPU NB voltage, with 10GB RAM, this is likely the setting causing instability.

Also the CPUZ snips will help us understand what settings you have.

What does your manual say about the voltage settings?
A quick search didn't come up with anything on your BIOS manual.

ran it again, same stable specs as before, only difference was i nocked down the core voltage to 1.4325, i crashed within 30 seconds of starting the test, i think i really do need that high of a voltage, or to up somthing else that i am just missing, at a multiplyer that high, i cant lower the voltage much and have much breathing room.

i dont think i will get to posting pics tonight... or i guess this morning technically to put this in perspective. if you can think of how i would get away with lowering it and getting a stable resault, feel free to shoot, but with my slight, limited working knowladge of overclocking, im finding i think i really need that voltage.

the last stable overclock i ran, you can look a few posts back, it was after it was suggested i increase the north bridge voltage, i raised it to 1.1125 ish. it worked financially at 1.450v core.

There are two different 'NB' voltage settings, one is the motherboard NB voltage, the other is the CPU IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) which is part of the CPU and usually called the CPU NB voltage, this will depend on the BIOS you have.

When you get a chance you can check this AMD thread for reference: Official Phenom II 125 watt 955 965 C3 BE Thread

Stormy will be a good reference for OC'ing your AMD system.

the "bios" i have, if you can call it that, is $4!T. stock bios always are. i am upgrading to a nice asus sabertooth soon, till then i am stuck having yo use overdrive... unfortunately.

so my bios calls it "Blocked"

That is the problem with OEM BIOS, not many options.

Over drive has voltage sliders, just need to figure out which one is for the CPU IMC.
Did you get any manual or have any info on OverDrive?

You'll get to have some real fun when you get the new motherboard.

Never used Overdrive but I am guessing that the CPU-NB setting would be the one labeled "Mem VIT", only thing is that just like in the crappy OEM (HP?) bios it is greyed out.

And it will be almost just as easy once you get the new motherboard as long as it has the UEFI bios. Just a matter of having a USB stick handy and you can take screen shots of it,

i love that, and i also love that asus bios interface. it will be a little while yet. is there a chance of unlocking the motherboard, it has so many restricted areas that demand a password that can only be aquierd by HP. on top of that, im not even sure it will let me OC, it just shows me my clocks in grey text

Thorton,
What is your cooling solution as you just have fan posted? I found that with stock cooling I shut down with much less clock than with my current.
