I loaded RMClock and lowered the Multiplier to X16...no more problems. So I'm sure my problem is this CPU wants a tad more juice.
This is the guide I used: http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=452126
Once I found it unstable I just went back in there and pinned vid(1) (look at the socket chart with the pin labels in that link), and that gave me an extra 0.032V boost, which turned out all I needed for stability. I would recommend trying this to see if any improvement.
See also that it says in there that whatever increase you choose, you should add an additional 0.016V as a satefy margin. So my reasoning when I did it was that I wanted to increase my voltage by the minimum amount (0.016V) and then I added 0.016V to that to get 0.032V. If that didn't it end up working I would've increased to a total of 0.064V, but the increase of 0.032V worked for me. Just keep in mind the amount of voltage increase you need could be different, so just try and see what works for you.
As far as the process, it's the same as when you pinmodded, just stick a jumper wire between the appropriate two holes. For the vid(1) I did, if you look at that socket chart with the pin labels, I put the wire between the vid(1) hole and the VSS hole right under it. And that's it. *Keep in mind that when you change your voltage, NHC won't report it different, it'll still say it is 1.340V, but you'll see if it is different when you check the stability of your system.
Okay, hope this helps. Good luck
