hey shauns,
I have that board too, and the same processor. Right now I'm in Linux at FSB 133, default vcore.
Dunno what could be the cause of your problem, but here is something weird I have experienced (though I have 2 sticks of some genreic 2100 DDR, 128 megs each): I could overclock more with the 4:5 ratio than with the 1:1. With 1:1 it just wouldn't boot. I don't know if it's the board (unlikely in my opinion) or my ram, but I thought I'd point it out.
Also, have you tried setting the FSB directly at 133, so that the 1/4 divider kicks in...
BTW, there's a +.2 vcore jumper on the board, though it doesn't actually add .2...
Hope this helps you, if you have some questions on my overclock, just ask :)

I'm sure... and right now i'm pushing it some more, using the overvolt jumper on the motherboard. My CPU does 133 happily, but anything after that requires huge vcore adjustments. But who cares, if it dies I'll get a northy :cool:

Right now I'm at bus 144, and I'm about to test for stability... vcore is at 1.95:mad:
