Not to sure on what the question is. But I'll try my best.

If you have OCed your CPU and you find that iTunes crashes or stops responding (this could happen with any program) then your OC might not be stable - In this case you can either try and make your OC stable or not OC so much.

What the **** is Foobar?

No, itunes runs at 3.00g doesn't crash just hearing glitch intermittently after checking all other programs, its only itunes that has the problem when O/C

Have you checked to make sure your Memory is running at the correct timings and voltage?

memory tested no errors or problems burned in at 100% cpu and sys test for four hours all is ok except still glitching in Itoons I own 2 ipods and itunes is the easiest way to keep them synced.

Well not alot you can do, if its just itunes then either revert to stock on your Ci7 920 and see if that helps or leave it at 3ghz and put up with the glitching.

I don't know why but I've found iTunes to be more of a pain on various PC's that I have than anything else.

The first thing I would do is make sure you have all the latest drivers and updates for iTunes and that cured some glitches for me.

Similar issues for me on step daughters PC which works just fine with anything else.

I finally gave up trouble shooting it speculating that since it's an Apple app maybe a Mac is where it belongs. :D 

I figured it couldn't simply be a fluke that it misbehaves on pretty much any PC I install it on.
