Overclocking my E6600


Hey guys. New to overclocking, so bear with me. Anyhow, I'm trying to overclock my E6600 to 2.8-3.0 but my motherboard will only go up to 2.5 for it to successfully boot. If I go above 2.5, it will keep coming up with the screen "press y to return to the bios, or press x to use previous settings" because it said the BIOS settings has changed. I'm assuming my motherboard has a cap for the overclock?

My motherboard is: Intel D975XBX2KR (Bad Axe 2)

Any help would be appreciated. Might I add, I didn't changed any voltage, just the bus.

i had a E6600 running at 3.6 for a yr and no problems, but i didnt have that mobo... maybe search the forums for that mobo and see what u should turn off and change in the memory department...
cause i be tthat may be the issue..

overclocking is more than turning up the fsb and no other changes...
