OC XP 3000+ on a KV7

    I'm having trouble getting a stable overclock setting. My computer is:

    Abit KV7 Mobo
    Athlon XP 3000+
    1gig PC3200 DDR
    GeForce FX5500 256Mb
    Windows XP Pro
    Coolmax 400W Power Supply

    My heatsink is damn good, too. I'm not sure the brand or model, but it
    keeps my CPU temp at a pretty steady 51 degrees C.

    Right now all of the settings are default for the XP 3000+. The FSB
    speed is set at 166mhz, the ratio is 5:2:1, and the multiplier is at
    13x. I can change any of the settings, including the multiplier, but I
    can't get anything stable. The best I got was I got the FSB to 175mhz
    (which put the CPU clock at 2.3ghz). I had to up the voltages on the
    CPU and the DDR just to get that setting to load Windows, but the
    computer rebooted after a couple minutes of use.

    Anyone have any idea what I can do?
