I can't overclock my A7M266 FSB above 141 for my 1.4 TBird. I know I said I OCed to a 145FSB, but that was before I realized that it wasn't stable, and that a 141MHz fsb was the highest stable FSB that I could get. Here's my specs, I just need a little direction as to what to try next, thanks :)

Case IW-Q500N Full Tower
Power Supply Powerman 300W
Motherboard ASUS A7M266
CPU AMD Athlon 1.4GHz
Ram 2X 256MB Crucial PC2100 DDR
Hard Drives 2X 60GB IBM deskstars 60XP
DVD-ROM Pioneer 16X DVD-106S
CD-RW Plextor Plexwriter 16/10/40A

Thanks,

I'd pull one of your sticks of Crucial and see if you can run at the higher FSB. Multiple sticks of RAM can affect an FSB overclock. Your other option could be to increase your RAM voltage, or run the sticks at less agressive settings.
