Mobo: eVGA x58 LE
PSU: Ultra LSP750

More info about the ram:

(Second one from bottom) *Note you can click the "Resources" tab for more info

This is what my current clocks are set to:

So you tell me if my current clock settings are correct? I'm not trying to over clock or anything, just wanna make my system more stable.

Thanks.

They are fine, you should have their voltage at 1.5 volt in the bios.

Well it seems you've upped the RAM speed to 1333 so it's not "stock" anymore. Default for 920 / X58 systems is 1066.

Most peeps buy 1333 memory so they can overclock their CPU.

With a BCLK of 166.67 (x 20) you'd have a CPU speed of 3.33 GHz and a memory speed of 166.67 (x 8) of 1333

Right now in my BIOS i have speedstep and turbo enabled, do you think that may be a factor in my crashes?

I guess I should explain these crashes a bit more, right. Well whenever I do a Windows Experience Index test, my computer always crashes at the "DirextX 10 ALU" test, it would first go to a black screen for a few seconds then go to something like this http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7364/sspx0075.jpg
I've contacted XFX (my video card's manufacturer) but they haven't been able to help me so far. Now this doesn't only happen during the index testing, it also sometimes happens when watching videos and playing games.

This only happens with Windows 7 (Home Premium, 64 bit), windows Vista ran flawlessly. I've tried formatting my drive and reinstalling Windows 7 twice but no success.

Any suggestions? Also the card is a 4850 (1GB).
