It can be very hard to find the right balance between voltage and operating temperature, and of course this will vary slightly between seasons.
Also as your finding out the very best overclocks are normally with two sticks of low capacity memory. Again it's another balancing act between having a useful overclock 24/7 and an extreme overclock for the odd occasion and using the same hardware components for both!
Hope you get this sorted, if it were me I slacken the RAM timings some more 5-5-5-15-2T and see what happens. Another thing from the screen shots, if at all possible try not to use "Auto" settings. I always found that actually specifying the correct value where know was always better than letting it decide for itself.
Thanks RobMozza- the sickening part is i had it more or less stable @ 3GHz, it crapped becaouse of the RAM voltage i'm sure, but i havent been able to recreate that. As far as the timings, 5-5-5-15 was the setting, i don't think i specified 2T though, might be worth a shot.
I'm beginning to think it is the voltage because i ran it @ stock on PRIME95 and if it was hardware i'd imagine there would have been issues. So it seems i just have to work at the correct timings,volts, etc. It's just a pain in the a$$ to have to reset the CMOS evry 3rd or 4th time
