Default I Dont Get It!!!! Help

Everytime I go to overclock my cpu, which is a socket 939 3200+ venice with an abit av8, it will run fine in prime95 for 5 hours, but as soon as i put it thru a game, or in this case 3dmark03, it freezes up right at the beginning (you know that plane sequence.) If I set it to default its fine. I have adequate cooling(after market HSF). I have tried upping voltages, read over the overclocking sticky on these forums. nothing I do can get it to run properly in games. I know there must be a way as the reason I bought the 3200 venice was because of its awesome overclocking abilitites. PLEASE HELP!!!!
