Yes, the 2000+ needs to be a T-Bred B or (unlocked) Thorton 2000+, not Palomino or T-Bred A 2000+.

Soltek needs to be nForce2 Soltek with PCI lock.

Name brand Power Supply. (very important for OCing)

2000+ retail cooling is no good for major overclocks like that, you need non-rtail (preferably all copper) cooling.

RAM needs to be able to do 220 FSB, you find this out by lowering the multiplier really low and then push the FSB up to see what the RAM FSB limits are, some can only go high with 6-3-3-2.5 (but 2 is better, yes)

Increase of Vdimm and Vcore voltage (and temperature as a result).

You say that when you restart it displays your running at 1250MHz? It sounds like you havent removed the FSB jumper from your motherboard.

It should be at 133, it sounds like its set to 100 at the moment?
