You might have to raise voltages. Biostar isn't known for overclocking either.

33c is fine so try raising the voltages a little, if this doesn't work, you may have come to an FSB wall, so try skipping this by increasing the FSB by 15-20MHz. But the 4400+ X2 can go higher than that for sure with that chipset, but your RAM isn't made by a very good brand so that could be holding you back.

I just love that hardware monitor! It's great. Although I think you could go higher, don't expect too much as the 64 x2 CPUs just aren't great OC'ers.

if you want a phenom than wait tell the black editions come out. they will be more expensive but the multipliers will be unlocked allowing from incredible overclocking.
