Make sure any power saving or throttling features are turned off in the BIOS. I think PowerNow! may be what its called on that processor.

Cool N Quiet is an AMD thing, but I think it was implemented in A64 processors. His is an Athlon XP. It may have something similar.

You need to overclock that board with software if you can not find a modified bios somewere. The Asus bios does not have any settings for this. Try Clockgen or Cpufsb.
