Raise fsb higher later.
I ran 9*400fsb=3.6g at default cpu voltage (1.185) stable for about 2 weeks without issue. Later bumped up vcore for heavy gaming to 1.25v without bluescreens after hours.
BTW: These 45nm cpu's will fry themselves if vcore exceeds 1.365, so beware. 1.365vc gets most owners up near 4.2g+-. Don't allow CoreTemp's to go above 72C if you care for the cpu.
So you're telling me to overclock it? I just want my stuff running at stock speeds and nothing lower.
