Okay, so long story short, my bios was only recognizing my ddr-3 1600 ram at around 600mhz, so I fixed the xmp profile and got it working at stock and while I was at it I was messing with trying to oc it to 1866 just to see if I could get it to work, after I did the system kept crashing every 5-10 minutes when I was gaming and whocrashed was reading random kernel errors. so I dropped it back down to 1600mhz and it seems stable now and ive had no more errors.
My question being is this because my hodge podge sandy build is bad for oc'ing stuff or just because I oc'ed improperly (ive overclocked my cpu and gpu already so I know its capable of that at least). First time ive ever dabbled in overclocking my ram.
Here's my build I was doing this on.

Also for the record, I used my motherboards preset overclocking options and I didn't muck with the latency's or voltage's myself, if anybody could help me understand how overclocking ram works a little better that'd be cool as I haven't done much with it.
