whats wrong? is there anyway to get past this?
Some CPU's can only go so far with multi's, try raising CPU-NB voltage by a slight amount / CPU voltage. If that doesn't work and you want to find the max multi your CPU can go up to, reset the FSB to 200 and slowly increase the multi by .5x until you can't go any higher (without going above ~1.55v ofc)

but your 955 runs stable at 4.3 with a nb of 2200 ? from what ive READ youre better off with a high nb speed and a lower cpu speed.
i dunno. i hijacked blostorm's help thread. lol
Watercooling will provide lower temps which is better for the flow of electricity and will provide a more stable overclock. Basically generally colder = better, always. Hence why they use extreme cooling (DICE, LN2, LHE) to get insane overclocks.
Get your NB at least to 2400/2600, 2800+ would be optimal for 4+Ghz
