Crashes/BSOD after 3.4ghz

Hi guys,

I seem to be at a plateau of 3.4ghz, any higher than that my pc just keeps crashing and BSOD'ing.

System specs:

CM real power pro 650W
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L
Intel Core2 e7500 2.93ghz - Xigmatek Achilles S1284C
Geil Black dragon DDR2800 2x1GB
EVGA GTX560Ti SC

my settings are:

340mhz x 10
dram frequency latch:400mhz
dram multiplier: 2.00D (which brings my dram:fsb ratio to 1:1)
ram timings 5:5:5:15
Ram voltage original at 1.8v now oc'ed to 2v
cpu voltage 1.33xxxxV

thats pretty much the settings i remember fiddling around with and i know my pc seems abit old but i try to make do and atleast able to squeeze out alittle bit more performance. i've spent pretty much around 6 hours trying out new settings but i just cant seem to get a stable system, i was able to hold at 3.6ghz for awhile but whenever i start a game it BSOD's...

At my current config it seems quite stable, skyrim runs smoothly around 40-60fps, 60 at times. Im still noob on OC'ing and im really trying hard to go for 4ghz with full stability.

Any help is much appreciated.

You may have just hit the limit for your cpu.

not really, well after 2 days of configuring, momentarily giving up and trying again, its at 3.9ghz right now ive set back all my ram settings to "auto" when i run games right now no problems but when i run stability tests the program crashes...
