So im trying to OC my G.Skill F3-12800cl8-2GBRM from 1333 to 1600.

My spec.

Amd phenom II 710 (OC, 3ghz and 4th core)

fsp 250 x 12
HT 2000
NB 2000

Mobo: M3A785GMH/128

2x G.Skill F3-12800cl8-2GBRM

My timings are 8 8 8 24 34, volt is auto

Ive been trying to get past 1333 but i wont get very far until it starts freaking out in windows loading area. Sometimes i reach login sometimes i dont.. Blue screen.

Any1 tried doing this with the same spec??
Maybe ive reached the limit of my rig??

Why do you want to overclock your memory? As you've discovered, there is *not* much room before the system becomes unstable.

Further, the benefits to running faster RAM are very small.

I think he just wants to run his ram at it's rated speed of DDR3-1600 so he doesn't feel cheated for buying 1600 ram.
