Re: CPU out of range?! grrr
This is why you need to read about overclocking before you mess with settings that you don't know what they do. You massively raised the CPU frequency. It might not have fried, who knows. Reset the M3N CMOS and try it.
I don't know what chip you have, so I'll use my chip as an example to demonstrate what you just did.
My chip has a default multiplier of 12.5, and the frequency is 2500MHz (200 (FSB)*12.5).
Now if I were to jack the FSB to 300 without changing anything else, I just overclocked it to 3.75GHz. That's a massive jump.
The correct way, if you are unsure of the limits of your chip, is to increase the FSB incrementally and slowly. Go up 5-10MHz at a time (depending on your multiplier, as that will obviously make changes more/less drastic) until it is no longer stable (doesn't POST, or crashes/doesn't load Windows).
In fact, since you just jacked the FSB up, you could have damaged other components as well, such as your memory. This is because when you increase the FSB, everything on the board increases as well.
