You can push to 55c max under full load!
Can you set to 200 MHz and above... that MB is capable ... Also, your RAM will need to be able to hit DDR400 for the below info and you may want to increase the vcore to get beyond the RAMs default speeds.
The nForce2 chip set voltage may also need an increase to be stable
Having an unlocked multiplyer allows you to achieve higher FSB settings and by utilizing the 200MHz and somewhat above gives you the room you need, that will get you back to more stable PCI/AGP bus speeds.
You will however need more voltage... about 1.85v.
Try 12x200 for starters and go from there, but DO watch your full load temps!!!

Opps... by the way, you should have settings for the PCI/AGP bus speeds, set the pci to 33 and the AGP to 66 to stablize the OCing
