Look, I don't know if you know this, but I'll breafly explain to you what overclocking is:
You have a processor which runs at 3.3Ghz. By overclocking it, you makes it run faster than the base clock (3.3Ghz).
But to run faster, you need more food. By food, I mean voltages.
It's like you run for 10 hours without eating food. Eventually you'll pass out (BSOD), but by eating too much you'll run slower.
Therefore, you'll have to find the exact amount of food that works for you. Nobody can tell you exactly how much you need, since everyone is difference. The only way to find out is to stress test.
Now, since you have something called "SpeedStep", you basically slows down and starts to walk (~1.6GHz), that's why you "survive" a couple of hours before you BSOD.
