amd64 3000+ venice ***help***

Hi all
i have just upgraded my rig and am having trouble with overclocking.
I have tried all the usuals.. lowering the memory frequency..lower the HTT to x3..upping the Vcore.. but a can't get the computer to boot above 1.9GHZ. Yet using clockgen i can get it upto 2.7GHZ and run prime95 for 24hrs no probs!!! any ideas??

That is odd indeed! Usually it's the other way around!

Did you use a RAM divider?
Try DDR333 or DDR266 settings.
You seem to know all the other stuff, that is about the only thing I can think of ATM!

Might want to flash back one version... some 939 series Asus didn't like the newest BIOS for OCing!
