Default BIOS OC problems

My system.

C2D 6600, 2 gigs g/skills. Gigabyte 965G DS3 mobo, eVGA7900 GTO, and 630w Raidmax PSU.

I think thats all the important stuff. Now my problem is When i try and overclock in the BIOS even the most slight change will cause me to be unstable. for instance, my RAM is 5-5-5-15. I push f5 in BIOS and change it to 4-4-4-12. It runs windows fine but say if i try and run 3dmark06 it just restarts. Now im not sure if yall have used the BIOS im using (award something or other) but the options to OC the CPU are not the same in a "normal" bios. from what I have read and seen the options to OC the CPU just arent their or are not makeing any sense to me. If anybody with the mobo/BIOS or just with the knowledge can help me that would be great. Im getting sick of reseting the CMOS 30 times a day

BTW all my drivers are up to date as far as i know
