Hey guys, I just got my CPU to run for 17 hours and then Orthos failed. Can anyone please check out my settings and see if you can see something I need to change?

The pic. you posted is helpful, but it doesn't show all of your current BIOS settings. Fill out this template for the EP45-UD3x showing all of your current settings, and post a direct link to your specific RAM, showing SPD timings and voltage at DDR2-1066MHz. You might also want to post the VID of your chip, using RealTemp--> 'Settings' page--> VID.

Try changing...

Code:
Static tRead Value: 6 to 7 or 8 (on both channels)
tRFC: Auto to 54
Command Rate: Auto to 2T or 2N
CPU Termination Voltage (VTT): 1.2 to 1.25 - 1.3V
MCH Clock Skew: Auto to 50ps (try this last)
