oh ok, thats good.

well, first things first. increase the FSB. by 5Mhz increments. and see if it will post. keep doing that until u hit a wall. then reduce back to what it was before the wall. run prime95 and memtest. if unstable. then go back to bios. and either set a mem divider, or overclock the ram by increasing voltage. if that doesnt work, see what your temps are. if the temps are fine. try lowering the multiplier, if its set high.

Most mobos come with overclock features built right into bios, if it's not, than you can use cpuz. google it and on their website you will see guides and faq's
