Default Help OCing Q6600...

I had it stable at 3.6 (water cooled) but I tried to get it to 3.8, not stable so I went back to 3.6 (I had fiddle with the vcore to try 3.8). It's still not stable. My screen flickers once on start up (only once). Prime95 BSoD'd my pc. So the cpu is not stable under load (after hours of gaming it crashes).

What Vcore voltage should I have for 3.6GHz Q6600?

My System Specs

what are your temps and voltages now?
it's safe to say 1.5 is max for a Q6600 if temps allow

edit:here some specs, more info here Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 HH80562PH0568M (BX80562Q6600)
V core (V) ? 0.85 - 1.5 Maximum operating temperature (C) ? 60.3 Maximum power dissipation (W) ? 155.25 Thermal Design Power (W) ? 105
