Need some help overclocking..

3D Studio max freezes when i put my iterations above 7..?
I'm new to max and I was just seeing what they did and what they were. I guess they smooth the object out more and more..


I'm using a stock cooler, the most I've seen my CPU go upto is 80 Celcius in prime95, which is pretty high and I'd rather not run it for 3 hours that hot, but it never gets that high when I'm gaming or doing daily activity.

Anyway here are my system specs


Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.0 GHz (Overclocked) D0
EVGA E-758-A1 Motherboard
Corsair Dominator 1600 Mhz DDR3 6GB (7-7-7-20) [Overclocked to 1722 Mhz (7-8-7-20)
XFX Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT
Corsair HX1000 Power supply
HAF 932 Case

Not sure how I could get my ram to 7-7-7-20 again with a 1722 MHz overclock,
My voltages are as follows:

CPU Vcore = 1.30000V
DIMM Voltage = 1.725V
PWM Frequency = 800 KHz
everything else is auto


Are my voltages okay? What would be better 1600Mhz ram with 7-7-7-20 or 1722Mhz ram with 7-8-7-20?
