I can do 3.4GHz with 1.36vcore.

Keep in mind that not all chips are the same.
I would undervolt it but its not stable. Everytime windows boots up it'll BSOD before all the startup programs finish. Also tried to loosen the timings but didnt work.

Then maybe you have a slightly bad chip. No worries. If your temps are fine, you'll do well. Just make sure it doesn't exceed 60C load.

Its more than likely your other settings.not your vcore that are preventing you from being stable. I would try everything to lower the vcore..as it will lower your temps too, which would be my primary concern. Extra v's = extra temp's.

Oh yeah, have you tried too give extra voltage to the north/south bridges? The MCH setting on my board controls the FSB that I raise to overclock. I think that's the north bridge. +0.1 helps a lot when it comes to high overclocks.

I use 1.4v NB and 1.6v SB and 1.4v for FSB term, for a 400mhz FSB on my P5B-dlx...only 1.4vcore for the cpu at 3.6

Im still tryin to figure out this board. Evga's 680i A-1 version. It's also got FSB voltage which i've tried tinkering with but no help. Not too concerned for now. 55C at load and 29-30C at idle right now.
