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?

What are you idle and full load temps? You may need better cooling to break the 3.0ghz mark. If you're on air, a 1.65Vcore, may be pushing your temps a little high. I'm surprised noone has pointed this out yet...
