Default Voltage probs.

I've done alot of research with this. I'm running:

AMD S939 Athlon 64 3500 VENICE W/ SSE3!!!
Asus A8N-E nForce 4 PCI-E
200G Western Digital
Old 40x CD Burner
1G Generic PC3200 RAM (2x512MB)
Sapphire ATi x800GTO
450 Watt Antec PS

Ok, so I was reading OVerclocking Articles, and I see an old one about an AMD Thunderbird hitting like 900MHz (700MHz default), and they had the voltage at 1.8V. Now, my motherboard lets me hit 1.6V max... yet a motherboard from like 5 years ago, and a (porbobly) 200Watt PS from like 6 years ago can get to 1.8V, yet my NEW PS and NEW motherboard won't let me go past 1.6V? Ok, so now you're wondering why I might want to raise my volts to higher than 1.7. I need more voltage you see, my CPU can go past it's current OC of 2.6Ghz from 2.2, I want to hit at least 2.7Ghz STABLE. I hit anything higher than 2.65 and it crashes, from what it seems to be POWER. I run 2.6Ghz at like 38 Celcius, I should be able to OC to 2.8 and manage 45max. So, does anyone know how to unlock the voltage or something?

try flashing the mobo bios. And try to find some bios that is designed for overclocking, and make sure that it's 100% compatible with ur mobo
