Default Overclock Issue...

In My Attempt to beat PD's overclock (Oh im gaining on you ) i have hit a brick wall! So far i have got my OC at 18 x 200 (At Stock Voltage) and Prime95 runs no problems and the max temp im getting is 45c.

If i try pushing it higher,either prime95 reports errors or Vista BSOD's? What gives? Have i hit my Motherboards/CPU's Max?

There's your problem. Raise the v-core, play around with it some more. At 45C, it sounds like you'll need better cooling too.

If that is his max temp then he is more than fine. The max recorded safe temps for the Phenom II quads is 62*c Raise the Vcore and you should get more outta it. You must have got a great chip if you are at 3.6 on stock vcore on the 940. I barely got over 3.6 on stock vcore on my 955.
