I can get my 955 to 3.8, but I had to increase vcore to 1.5v and decrease
RAM from 1600 to 1333 to get it stable in prime (for about 5-10 mins). However, I don't really have adequate cooling so I put it back down to 3.6. It's definitely possible, especially for you. Just tweak the voltage and RAM. Sometimes oc'ing your NB frequency can also help with stability.
