I'm stuck @3.6GHz.

If I attempt to raise either FSB or voltage any further, my system freezes up. :(:

Yes I did, but really not too much detail, especially for my mobo.

Both of the links say to start set the voltage to auto and then increase the FSB from 333MHz to 445MHz in 25MHz increments. Then you may need a slight bump in voltage.

How did you get to 1600??

Take a look at the 2nd pic I posted here: http://forums.pureoverclock.com/showthread.php?t=10053&page=3

The 1600 equates to a 400MHz on my mobo.

Yea, I was just there and saw that it is listed as FSB (QDR). For Quad CPU.

What happens if you go to 1700? Which would be a bump of 25MHz.

Well, when I bump it to 1650 the system locks up.

Try a bump of the FSB voltage to 1.22. Or have you already tried that?

No, I've only been raising the CPU Core voltage. Haven't touched the CPU FSB voltage.

Also, can you tell me what that nForce SPP voltage is for?

I think the nForce SPP voltage is for your graphics card. But I'm not sure.

Good Luck.

Someone will chime in on it give it a bit. I would also add screen shots of your bios showing the cpu settings.
