I7 920 + ram problems overclocking?

I'm overclocking my i7 920 and anytime i take the processor above 3.3ghz no matter the ram settings no matter how much voltage and how low the speed is on the ram i cant even pass the windows memory test before i boot into windows but i can pass it and prime 95 @ 3.24ghz. Do i have bad ram or is it just bad for overclocking or what?

  1. In prime 95 my temperaters don't excede 79C

    My sig is with turbo mode on it just turns it back on always for some reason, i keep turning it off.
  2. i ran the cpu at stock settings and took the ram up to 1600mhz at 1.65v and i got an FF error on my motherboard.
  3. Found the problem i'm not at 3.64ghz @ 1.364Vcore under load but im not sure if i should go higher because bumping it up to boot at 3.7ghz i go to 1.376vcore which is above intels recommended on newegg?
