Hi mate!
I have the same motherboard and there is probably a solution for you!
I had similar problems when i first bought it. The system in default would ran fine, but if i tried overclocking even a few MHz it would crash completely!
I am very glad to announce that they have since released a decent BIOS upgrade that fixed all those problems. I don't know why it took them over a month to fix it, and i certainly was not happy about it, but at least it is over now.

Head over to:

Download the latest BIOS (F7, 22-8-2008) and install it

Then try installing Windows and everything again. This time it should let you play nice. Good luck and hope everything works out good like in my case!
