Any reason to believe i should have a problem going over 2.62 ghz?

Are you running a divider on your memory? If not put in a slight divider and see what happens. I don't want to hear it is ddr-500 and should be able to.... You might be able to push your memory further but for now see what your 3700+ can do.

Your RAM may have hit a wall. HZ ussualy overclocks very well, but you may have gotten a rotten batch. Run a divider, see if it helps.

What's your stepping?

Have you tested the max of each component? Like this? http://www.overclock.net/faqs/31782-...pu-memory.html
I did the guide and my old 3700 maxed at 2500, after that it failed prime. Some CPUs only go so far and might have got the poor OCer. Try the guide so you can find out what may be holding you back.

My old 3700+ (6 months old, that's ancient) is able to do 2.93GHz @ 1.65V with 293 HTT and a 166 divider. Currently running at 2.86GHz @ 1.55V 260HTTx11 with a 1:1 ratio. Newer 3700+ seem to do alot better (some reach 3GHz on air). A64s are a :swearing: to overclock succesfully because they relly on the RAM also. Try running a divider and play around with the RAM timmings a bit.
