stability issues

326 8
i have the setup listed below. last week i overclocked to 3.0 and had a major system crash. after i pulled the battery and reset the cmos i got it working again, i believe that i over heated the nb chipset at that time. now i have it set to 2.58ghz 235fsb x 11 mulitplier, 1.425v. ram set at dr333 timing pretty much stock 2.75v thougth. now its freezing intermittently and this morning it wouldnt boot for me so i reset the cmos. but what do you think is my problem???? the board bad? or the ram holding me back????
