It has always been droop. Because it "droops":

1. To bend or hang downward: "His mouth drooped sadly, pulled down, no doubt, by the plump weight of his jowls" (Gore Vidal).
2. To bend or sag gradually: flowers drooping in the midday heat.
3. To sag in dejection or exhaustion: drooped from lack of sleep.

ram @ 800mhz,
timings to 5-6-6-18,
and my cpu maxed out at a whopping 333mhz. yes, thats right. it would not post past 333 mhz. (stock speed)

so, then i tried this:
ram to auto (pc2-5700),
ram volts at auto (1.8),
fsb at 1.4,
cpu volts at auto (1.168),
and i got all the way to 388 mhz (3.5ghz) before it wouldnt post. I got artifacts in bios at 3.6 mhz, but went away after.

any ideas??
You got artifacts in the bios because you forgot to lock the PCI-e frequency, this is very risky. The reason you can't overclock if because haven't locked the PCI-e frequency to 100. Otherwise update the bios, because that will help too (if there is a new revision or maybe beta bios).
