The vcore at 1.71 is definately ok, that's default.
The overclock you're doing shouldn't hurt your chip. You're actually quite safe with that motherboard since it doesn't allow a lot of changes.
I've finally gotten around to looking at my old pc, and I think the important thing with this motherboard are the fsb jumpers on the board itself. However, there seem to be several board versions out there, and some don't have these jumpers, (or I couldn't find them). If you have exactly the same board as me then they are circled in red in the picture below. Only the 2 blue ones are important.
Again, there should be nothing to worry about. I've tried all settings and none damaged my hardware.
Now, here's what you should try:
1. Set your fsb to "auto" again.
2. Shutdown your pc.
3. Look at the board the way it's on my picture. Set the jumpers like this:
I. .I .
. I. .I
4. Boot up again and go into bios.
5. Change from "auto" to "manual" again. The setting should now be at FSB 200. Take it down to 197 again.
And that's about it! You can now try upping the fsb, up to 200 or maybe even a little more, but that's about all you can do. Your hardware should be at its limits!
Have you tried that "over vcore" option in your bios I showed you? Enable it and check your vcore again. It should be slightly higher, but only a bit (5%). Nothing to worry about.
This might let you raise your fsb a little higher.
Finally try running prime95 to see if it's stable. If it is: Congratulations to your 1st(?) overclock!
Next time get better hardware, and you'll overclock like hell!
