Believe it.
You have reached the limit of your mb. NF4 chipsets start to fail past 250fsb. Get yourself a 955/975x chipset mb and you will be able to oc farther.

Its also worth noting that the temp probes on Asus and Abit motherboards are not that accurate.

It might be also worth investing in an aftermarket CPU cooler as the OEM ones are not very good when you overclock

Thanks for the heads up. I always noticed that Asus prob temps varied differently from my hardcano temp probes. I'm saving up for a swiftech water cooling kit. Still a far way from that.

Any motherboar recommendations? I'm used to Asus but I can make a change to another better brand. Is Abit good? or DFI? My budget is a little tight though. Around the USD$120 mark.

Im not a S775 Socket person but as long as you have decent CPU/DRAM/ Voltage ranges along with a PCI-E/PCI lock you should be ok.

The others will be able to give a specific product suggestion.

The reason for mentioning the HS was that although his temps are good but for the sake of the cpu, running at a lower temp threshold will extend the life of his kit

Asus boards tend to read low, Abit boards read high.

Any decent overclocking boards from DFI, Abit, Asus are reputable. Just try and avoid the "value" boards as they are limited.

It is more helpful if you add more detail to your user CP.

Rather than 'OCZ Value Pro 4200(2x512)' you could have put OCZ DDR2 PC4200, or OCZ DDR2 2*512, depending on what fits. Im guessing timsvpr thought you had DDR because yours is PC4200. Why is your DDR2 so 'slow' ? You can get normal DDR upto PC4800.

Thanks for the tip. I've updated it. My ram is a OCZ Value Pro PC2-4200 DDR2 1024Mb/1Gb (2x512) . I can run it all the way up to 667mhz (4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v) but I wanted to keep the ratios 1:1 . My fsb at the moment is at 250 so I put my ram to 500mhz.
