Please be more forward with specific information.

What heatsink, thermal paste, case cooling?
What power supply?
What RAM? RAM Timmings and voltage?
What about the other voltages including Vcore, Frontsidebus and north bridge?

Provide as much information as possible.

So your Front side bus is 1.893 GHz? That is probably why... So your CPU multi is seven then.

You may have to increase the multi or if you can't, if it is locked at 7, you will have to try increasing north bridge and FSB voltage.

But a FSB of 1.893 Ghz is pushing it..

Unfortuanately, my multi is locked at 7 . I have tried messing around with the north bridge voltages but i can't get to the point of being able to boot windows, do you think i reached my cpu's limit?

Well it isn't your CPU that is limiting you, its the boards limit for Front side bus..

But yea, you can't go any further.

what voltages is it failing to boot w/ for your cpu. Try underclocking your ram so its out of the equation and up the NB and Cpu vcore
