Trying to OC my new comp based on Tom's Feb $625 build and having major problems. Basically I can't get past a CPU Frequency of 250 MHZ for the life of me. I will post my system specs here and a detailed almost perfect representation of what my bios would look like to you with all information that i thought could be even remotely relative to why i'm getting nowhere with this.

CPU SPECS = E5200 @ 2.5 GHZ, ASROCK P45XE(2000 MHZ FSB), 4 GIGS CORSAIR DDR2-800 (Tested at JEDEC standard latency settings(7-7-7-20) at 2.0V,SPD programmed at:JEDEC standard 6-6-6-18 values at
800MHz),ATI/SAPPHIRE RADEON 4870 512 MB, MASSIVE ZALMAN HEAT SINK,5 CASE FANS COOLING THIS THING OFF,500W PC POWER SUPPLY (SLI READY).

RUNNING CPU @ 42C, AND MB @ 37C WITH THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS. ALL CAPPED ITEMS ARE UNCHANGABLE IN MY BIOS WITH CURRENT SETTINGS.

I have all the software and i know how to monitor my hardware. My main issue here obviously is bios settings. It's a lengthy post i realize but i have the concept and i just need a start, ie letting me know what voltages need to be changed besides the fsb and nb etc.

RATIO ACTUAL VALUE = 6
Ratio CMOS Setting = [6](Scales to 12.5)
Overclock Mode = [Manual]
CPU Frequency (MHz) = [200](Scales from 100 MHZ to 800 MHZ)
PCIE Frequency (MHz) = [100](Will fix at 100 MHz when over clock mode is set to Manual, which i hear is a good thing.)
Strap FSB to MCH = [Auto]; Options = 266,333, and 400.
Dram Frequency = [Auto]; Options = 333Mhz(DDR2 667), and 400MHz(DDR2 800)
Vcore = 1.232 V
CPU Voltage = [Manual](Scales to 1.60 V)
DRAM VOLTAGE = 1.90 V(Manufacturer recommends 2.0 V for 7-7-7-20, which i adjusted to)
Dram Voltage = [Auto](Scales for 1.79V to 2.72V)
Dram VREF Increment = [Normal]; Options = [Standard = Normal, Max = + 100 mV, Increment = 20 mV]
MOTHER BOARD VOLTAGE INFO = 1-1-1
SB Core Voltage = [Auto]; Options = [1. Low,2. Middle, 3. High, 4. Highest]
SB 1.1V Voltage = [Auto]; Options = [1. Low,2. Middle, 3. High, 4. Highest]
GTL Ref Voltage = [Auto]; Options = [1. 0.67 x Vtt,2. 0.65 x Vtt, 3. 0.63 x Vtt, 4. 0.615 x Vtt]
MOTHER BOARD VOLTAGE INFO = 1.12-1.20-1.50
NB Voltage = [1.12V]; Options = [Standard = 1.12V, Max = 2.22V, Increment = 0.02V]
VTT Voltage = [1.20V]; Options = [Standard = 1.20V, Max = 1.90V, Increment = 0.02V]
PLL Voltage = [1.50V]; Options = [Standard = 1.50V, Max = 2.78V, Increment = 0.02V]
Boot Failure Guard = [Enabled]
Spread Spectrum = [Disabled]
Enhanced Halt State = [Disabled]
CPU Thermal Throttling = [Disabled](Enter to enable or disable P4 CPU internal thermal control mechanisms)
No-Execute Memory Protection = [Disabled]
Intel Speedstep = [Disabled]
Intel C-STATE tech = [Disabled]
Memory Remap Feature = [Enabled]
Flexibility Option = [Enabled](When it's enabled, it allows better tolerance for memory compatibility)
STANDARD MEMORY INFO = 5-6-6-18-52-7-4-3-3
9 DRAM FUNCTIONS IN A ROW/LIST IE,DRAM tCL, ALL SET TO AUTO.
ADVANCED MEMORY INFO = 18-18-10-10-0-0
6 DRAM FUNCTIONS IN A ROW/LIST IE, DRAM CH0 RCOMP ODT, ALL SET TO AUTO.
2 SUB MENUS TITLES (DRAM RCOMP STRENGTH Configuration) and (DRAM DLL SKEW Configuration).
Intelligent Energy Saver = [Enabled]
Primary Graphics Adapter = [PCI Express]
Suspend To Ram = [Disabled]
PCI Latency Timer = [32]
PCI IDE Busmaster = [Enabled]
Vcore = 1.232 V
+ 3.30V = 3.344 V
+ 5.00V = 4.944 V
+12.00V = 12.144 V
CPU Queit Fan = [Disabled]

You might also want to try higher Vcore, something like 1.3-1.35. And its kinda weird that you have only 2 DRAM speed options, without the 1:1 ratio(DDR2 400 with fsb of 200mhz)clearly visible. Maybe you need to try different strap, as having only two ratios seem just wrong.
