okay..so, i'm still new to overclocking

i've started overclocking my 3500 venice about a week ago?..and right now i'm up at around 2.6Ghz...and i can't seem to go higher...

right now at 2.6 my voltage is at the max the motherboard will let me..and when i go a bit higher than 2.6 and prime/orthos..i error (rounding) before hitting the 10 minute mark...

is mine just a bad overclocker or.. something to do with my motherboard?..cause i know the board isn't the best
..it's actually pretty old and bad..but anyways..have i reached my limit?...here are some cpuz screens

okay, so if i downgrade my bios to release i can up the vcore more..but i'd rather not..

is there something wrong?

i've seen other 3500 venices go further no problem with maybe 1.616 max..or something..

i know that every cpu is different..but i'm wondering if something with my setup is not satisfying the needs for a good overclock..

any help is greatly appreciated..thanks

Have you checked temps? What is your stepping? Try increasing the vcore just a bit and make sure the RAM isn't limiting you (loosen timings, etc).
