Default Finishing Up OC on Intel Pentium D 940

Okay I've got it up to 3.84GHz from a stock 3.2GHz and I'm trying to stabilize it out. In BIOS the voltage is at 1.385

I can get into windows and run and do whatever i please pretty much but when i run Prime95 or Orthos i get an error. I have not messed with RAM timings, Could this be the problem?

I'm at least trying to hit 4.0GHz if thats even possible on air. My temps are fairly decent @ idle they hover around 30c and the Motherboard stays @ about 40-42c

I haven't tried playing games yet @ this OC. If someone could explain RAM timings and how i should know to set them depending on my clock and voltage.

P.S. This is my first time OverClocking
