Default What could the problem be???

SO i've overclocked my system(check my sig) up to 2.358Mhz,I've also overclocked my video card,which i know i must upgrade,anyways I have a 550W psu and good ram, why is it that when i try to do a stress test with prime95 it stops running within a minute saying that theres an error? everything else seems to run fine, ive played video games with no problems.I also have 3rd party cooling for my ram, chipset,vidcard and liquid cooling for my cpu so i dont see that as being a problem.Im still kinda new at this so you help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
heres my bios settings

AGP Ratio fixed 66Mhz
CPU 1.65v
AGP 1.65v
DDR 2.70v
NB 1.60v

Well if you're playing games like Doom3, or HL2, or heavy games like that hours on end, it seems like your system is fairly stable regardless of what prime95 says, could be you just need to up your vcore though, that's what increases stability in programs like prime95

whatever your boards max is

Anything at 1.9v and below is good for 24/7 IMO
