yeah the boards CAN handle up to 400MHz FSB's and unfortunately you can't just group XP's into one group like you did. Specific XP processors like the XP-Mobiles and 2500+ XP are good overclockers because of their core. Even those you don't simply jump it up by that much of an increment.

Yup Yup...roger that.

Anyhow, if anybody ever comes across this thread for clearing the CMOS on an ASUS A7N8X (not delux)...the general steps are just a tad different than what I posted above...

The correct method to clear the CMOS and reset the bios is to:
- Unplug power cord.
- Find and take out mobo battery.
- Change the jumper setting on the mobo right next to the battery to the last 2 pins instead of the first 2 pins.
- Wait 10 seconds or so.
- Change jumper setting back to original position.
- Put the mobo battery back in.
- Plug in the pc again and turn on.
- Boot into the bios and make necessary changes.

Well, I doubt I will try to OC again. I don't think I have the cooling necessary to keep the machine stable for long periods of time OC'd anyhow. No harm, no foul...
