Well Im gonna say that your not getting enough power to your CPU to run a stable overclock. If you cant raise your Vcore then your pretty much stuck.

That is stock voltage, which is intended to keep the system stable at stock speeds, if you start to overclock, the system will require more power to become stable, some times you can overclock a ton before running into these issue, but sometimes you can only clock a little bit before you have to up the voltage. Like I said if you cant up the voltage then your pretty much stuck.
If you are passing memtest then your ram is not holding you back it is your CPU.

Well I just did a search on your board, and found out that it has the sis chipset in it, which means your overclocking is totaly limited, and your not gonna get very far, plus it says nothing about being able to up vcore or anything, some Ithink you are pretty much stuck were you are. Heres the info I found on your board.

alright i think it might be time for me to give up on this comp and start building a better computer...i have a lot of pc games that i would like to play at a decent framerate...i already got some low latency hyper-x from a friend and i can get a good deal on an asus a8n32 sli for $160..does this board let u play with the cpu and ram voltages?

Yeah that board has voltage changes in it, and all sorts of great features, it is (which im sure you know) an AMD board for socket 939, so if your gonna go that route you might want to start talking with the AMD guys.
