any help would be greatly appreciated
Raise your VCore in the BIOS to 1.32V and try again.
You can also try AOD (AMD OverDrive) to OC your CPU.
When OCing, changing the multi only will stop eventually, as the OC steps are way to huge. When using the HTBus (stock @ 200MHz) the OCing goes smoother.
MP*HT-Bus = CPU speed.
14*200 = 2800MHz (Your current speed).
When raisng the MP only, you'll end up with 15*200 = 3000MHz, cuz MP 16x will just keep crashing the system, even though you gave it enough Voltage.
The reason could be that 1 of you cores can't go any further and it's max would be let's say 3150MHz. You don't know that, so by raising the HTBus you can find the max stable speed of your cores.
Note that When raising the HTBus, it ill affect your NB-speed, HT-Speed and memory speed.
There are some guides in OCing Phenoms, just search these forums as I believe they're stickied.
My 1st Core of my 9850 is a bad one, so I Clocked the cpu to 14.5*200=2900MHz (max stable for the core) and OC the other 3 cores to 3.2 having VCore at 1.39V
