    Next stop should be a guide for your particular motherboard. Google is your friend.

    I think you may be inadvertently overclocking your memory.

    Before you start overclocking, adjust your memory clock to 533 Mhz. That will give you a 1:1 CPU:FSB ratio. At that point, start raising the FSB and adjust the memory clock to stay at twice the FSB frequency. You should be able to run at 3.0 GHz with little or no CPU core voltage increase.
