Talking 3500 @ 2.75 rock solid but wont go higher?

Hrmm well ive found that lovely happy medium where your rig loads at 38c and idles at 33c at 1.45v. 24hr+ rock solid on sp2004 and prime95. I should be happy but you know we gotta try to push it a bit harder. Anything beyond 250 fsb just wont be stable. I have the ht at x3 mem at 2-3-2-6, recommended for corsair XMS, and the mem voltage at 2.9. I ran just a cpu stress test in sp2004 and she wont be stable for more than 10 min even at 1.55 volts. My temps don't rise much but stepping it up 4 times and no stability stress test wise seems odd. Any suggests on what could be holding it back or is it just at its max. Thanks much.

3500+ @2.75
Corsair XMS (2x512)
Biostar TForce4U
WD80g SATA 3.0g
Antec TruePower 2.0 500w
6800gs @ 522/1.21

(forgot my sig was diff lol)

Have you tried running a memory divider, it could be your thats holding u back.

Still thats a very nice overclock.
