I'm surprised you even got it that far. The willamettes don't usually oc that well. I had a 1.5 that I couldn't get much more than 1.7 on. Most other people have the same experience. I wouldn't go any higher than your current vcore if I was you, and to be honest it probably wouldn't help anyway. You should maybe just back it off to 2GHz and then see how much lower you can set your vcore to, then live with that cause it's all you'll probably get. And no, there's no unlocking your multiplier. If you can get 2ghz stable on that willamette, you've already got a good oc for that chip.
