That seems like waaaaay too much voltage for 3.7ghz.... Have you by chance run a memtest on your RAM? I had a system once that kept getting progressively less stable. First it wouldn't run at 4ghz any more, then 3.8, then 3.6 etc etc. until it would blue screen at stock speeds.
Happened to be a bad stick of RAM.
