If raising the vcore up and you said you tried running the memory at a slower speed (a divider) then you may very well be at the Max OC for either the motherboard or the CPU. I am suprised that you can not get it any higher. I can't think of anything else to try. Like some of the other members said, It could be that your PSU is not able to supply enough power to support a higher OC. Sometimes when you hit a wall like this, it's best to load up defaults and start over.

I have a prescott which use lower voltages but you should try going up to 1.7Volt Max.

Whats your temps on full load at the moment?

Set your Divider to the lowest one, the 266. Turn Spread Spectrum off and that will help your ocing. Also, have a good look around the bios and ask questions about settings you think might help but are unsure of.
