Hi nethkenneth, and Welcome to the Forum!

In this article/review from TweakTown you will find some excellent suggestions for the overclocking capabilities of your motherboard on page 3...

It looks to me, from reading that review, that you have made a very good choice in a motherboard for overclocking.
However, your choice of memory leaves a lot to be desired.
You are using DDR333 (which is 'rated' for 166 MHz), with a 200MHz/400DDR processor (your XP 3200+ runs at 200MHz in 'stock' form)
From the review, I picked out this little gem...QUOTE During our tests, we lowered the CPU multiplier and raised the FSB with the DRAM at 1:1 and managed over 267MHz FSB without a problem.
Judging from that, if you hope to get the most out of your board / CPU combination, then you are going to need much better memory... like PC4200 = DDR533 = 266Mhz as a minimum.

Read the article that I link to above, page 3 in particular, and then come back with questions, Okay?

Do you know whether your XP 3200+ is 'Super-locked' or not?
Anything made after '03/40th week is 'Super-locked'
