Default Anyone else with a 790i FTW digital and E8400?

Im hitting all kinds of walls with this duo, I can get 3.6ghz stable @ 1.21v @ 400fsb but trying to get much higher my motherboard refuses to boot. It just runs all my fans @ full speed, the LED display says FF which is normally what it lists when its in boot mode so it should be posting something other then what it is. This is happening when I set my FSB at anything higher then 1650mhz.

My System Specs

My E8400 required a fairly substantial jump in vCore going from 3.6 Ghz thru to 3.8 and 4.05 Ghz.....try unlinking Memory running it at specs and pushing vCore to 1.425v...see if it will Post.

vcore 1.448 in CPUz right now but only way I know that is to back down to 3.6ghz again to be able to boot, nothing over 3.6ghz will post. Or if it does it tells me that im in safe mode and to reset the CPU frequencies or ram speeds.
