Default Help Overclocking

I am trying to overclock my q6600 further so i can post a better 3dmark score but i cant get it to boot past 3.7ghz @ 1.5v. When i tried 1.6v the Bios automatically reset (as it does with failed overclocks) and the motherboard monitoring tool said vcore: fail. Is my power supply not good enough for my rig? (see sig), or is there something else i need to change ie fsb voltage etc i havnt got time now but i will try loosening RAM timings after school. Current overclock is 9x412=3.7 (also 1.6v is my mobo's max)


- Intel Q6600 G0 @ 3.2Ghz 1.33v -
- G.Skill 4Gb DDR2 @ 1066Mhz 5-5-5-15 -
- XFX 5850 @ Stock -
- Gigabtye GA-G33M-DS2R -
- Intel X-25V 40Gb Solid State -
- Corsair 520HX 520Watts -
- Cooler Master CM690 -

Vedub and others would know better, but from what he told me, 3.6 is about the best I can get out of my Q6600 because much more and the mobo can't handle the higher FSB. And really, if you also get it to 3.6 stable like I do, what more do you need?
