I was pushing my fsb up today and when I reach about 143 I think Win Xp refuses to boot and I get a blue screen with an error on it. This fsb seems pretty low so I was wondering if this could be my hard drive not being able to handle it since it is pretty old (3 years maybe)?

It could be your hard drive, or another PCI card, but I wouldn't think so, because your bus speed isn't that high. Is your CPU unlocked? if not it may be the CPU limiting you. at 143 you'll be at 1787 MHz on the CPU. from what i've seen, this is about what alot of people are getting with XP's. try unlocking the chip, decreasing the multiplierand increasing FSB.
