that is a tough question because it should go past 3.0ghz on stock voltage no problem NO MATTER which chip you have. I was thinking perhaps your cpu fsb overclock also OCed your ram frequency which doesn't support such high speed. in that case, have you tried to downclock your ram mhz while you OC your cpu?
