well, you have 3 problems here...

1) your 3000+ cpu isnt a great overclocker and usually 2.3-2.4ghz is the maximum

2) You are going to need to increase your vcore (cpu voltage) to say 1.6v.....it should be 1.5v stock..

3) I'm not sure about your memory, what capabilities does it have.....was it expensive? What are the timings default, should be something like 2.5-3-3-8.

If your memory isn't that good, then you will have to use the memory divider to slow it down...Your memory divider should be a setting with figures like 200, 166, 133, 100.....you will want to set it to 166.
You also want to increase your Vdimm (memory voltage) to 2.7v.

i hear people got the 3000+ socket 754 up to 2.6 but anyway i will do some changes now to the bios settings and try to run 240x10 and see if that works, i have my case opened and ready for bios reset in case anything goes wrong... brb

That's very very rare.....I had your same cpu and was only able to run 2.4 with about 1.65v for my daily clocks....sure you can go higher, but those aren't prime stable numbers and probably done on extreme water or even phase. Newcastles are pretty crappy overclockers, but not as bad as the clawhammers...
If you are interested in keeping your current 754 setup, there is a 3000+ venice core, that clocks to 2.6+.
I believe it's like $140

You drop the RAM speed (or Divider) in the DIMM Power Management section of the BIOS. but it should be in the same place where you change your timings, just lower the speed by running a divider

Before you try going for a really high overclock I think you should first understand the basics, including RAM timings.

Basic overclocking guide
AMD overclocking guide
Understanding RAM timings

If you have any specific questions after reading thoses, feel free to ask. It would be a lot better if you understood most of it first though, so make your way on to those

If you have any questions concerning something that they don't explain or answer in the guides, then it's most likely because it relates to newer motherboards/processors (like yours, Athlon 64). We can answer those here too.

Oh, and to Gator - I'm sure his has a divider setting, but remember that some motherboards don't. Like mine, for example

Hello all... again )

It seems that I dont have any divider!!! Running CPU Freq. over (225)x10 didnt work, the computer just didnt start up so I had to reset the BIOS, I will read the links and do some tests and post you some replys!

I am currently running (225)x10 CPU, and HT Freq. (4x)

--------------------------------------------------------
SiSoft Sandra says :

Front side bus speed : 2x900 (1800data rate)
Max FSB speed/Max Memory speed : 2x1000/ 2x200

current cpu : 2.25Ghz PR3375
memory bank : 2x225 (450Mhz)

Yes, I highly suggest you read those They may be a little confusing at first in some parts (especially the RAM FAQ), but it will help a lot now and later on when you understand more of the terms and methods.

The reason you're unstable I'm guessing is because you have to turn you CPU voltage up a bit. Your CPU voltage is most often referred to as vcore (or VCC or VDD).

Have you downloaded CPU-Z yet? I suggest you download it at www.cpuid.com . It'll help you see your CPU statistics and settings, as well as your RAM settings and stats, while in Windows. Post a screenshot of your CPU stats after you download it. It's smaller than SiSandra and uses far less resources, so it's quick to load and easy to view.

Also, here's a decent computer acronyms guide as well:

you have a memory divider, you just have to find it. Its listed probably under DRAM configuration in the bios, and it could have adjustments that also look like 400,333,266. If it looks like these, it is the 333, that you want to use.
Increase your Vcore to 1.6v.

Double posting for a good cause....I have located your bios and will be giving you the exact things to change.....we will be going for 2.35ghz right now....

(cpu settings)

CPU FSB frequency = 235
HT frequency = x4
Adjust CPU ratio = 10x
Adjust CPU VID = 1.55v

(memory settings)

Timing mode = manual
Memclock Index Value = 166
Cas Latency = 2.5
Min RAS# = 7
RAS to CAS = 3
Row Precharge Time = 3
Leave all the others at AUTO

MTRR mapping = continuous
