    Where do you stand now?
    What kind of CPU cooler do you use?

    Large amount of memory may be a bottleneck. Start with this and then see if you want just higher CPU frequency or ram as well.
    For ranges start with the lower value.
    Before running windows it is recommended to run a few passes of memtest86+.
    For stability tests run Prime95 2-3 hours small and large FFT, then blend for 8+ hours.
    Watch core temperatures with RealTemp or Core Temp, for prime temps should not exceed 70c.

    How do you mean, with higher CPU Ratio or FSB?
    Please post full BIOS settings that fail.

    Voltage seems hight for 3.77GHz. IMO anyway.
    Can you post the settings for 3.55GHz?
    What are your temperatures under load?
    Have you ran LinX or IBT(Intel Burn Test), what are GFlops with 3072MB memory?
