I am determined to hit 3 Ghz!

Well, I found out last weekend what my highest possible overclock is on my 3700, 2.95 with 1.65 vcore. Specs to follow:
2-2-2-5 Timings, I can do CAS 1.5, but apparently there's a performance hit associated with 1.5?
Vcore 1.65, Vdimm 3.5, Vchipset 1.6, LDT 1.2.

I'm able to do 3.0 ghz, 300*10, but it's not stable. I started to bump up the vcore, and in OCCT, I noticed that as vcore increased, the test failed closer to finishing, so I concluded that as I juiced it up more, stability did increase, but I was running 1.75 vcore before I backed off at 295*10 at 1.65 vcore, where I'm comfortable. Is there another route I should take besides trying to juice it up, or is this the limit of the chip?

If you were entered into a blind study, I guarantee you wouldn't see any difference with 100 mhz.

I was talking about your comment when you said it's too bad he couldn't get to 3 ghz yet. I'm just saying that you wouldn't notice any difference in performance,that's all. To be honest, I've used my system on stock settings before and didn't even realize it until I opened PCWizard up. I know I've done it at least twice.
