It is a little bit picky when you're overclocking sometimes. Just make sure you up the voltages when necessary. Also, it seems to get slightly unstable for me when I bring the FSB above 270 MHz, but the stock speed is 200 MHz, so 270 is COOKING. I could probably try to get it stable or whatnot, but I've just never messed with it. Like I said earlier, I'm happy with the overclock I have and getting it from 2.25 GHz or 2.3 GHz to 2.4, 2.5, or 2.6 GHz isn't going to make THAT much of a difference for me. The graphics are all in the graphics card anyway.
Make sure you plug the front side USB into the right spot man. If you don't, you'll get a false beep code that tells you there is an error. It is easy to goof up for a first build. If you have problems after you build it, unplug the front side USB to see if that helps.
