Exclamation 3000+ Winchester & Epox 9NPA+ Ultra O/C problems

Hello all,
I just purchased this set, and was hoping to have high overclocks but for some reason I am stuck. I have tried a lot of things to get it to work, but no luck, I am dead stuck at 225fsb! Not 226, nothing higher, maxed at 225, and sometimes it wont even cold boot at that speed. The error I get in the post display is error 50, dunno what that means. Look at my specs and tell me what may be the problem cuz im going crazy

I disconnected hard drives, used my old 380w truepower power supply, increased voltages like crazy, used a pci card and d/c the pci-e card, dunno what the problem is, and I did it using a stick of pc3200 samsung as well, but no luck. Luckily on the post display thingy on the mobo it stops at the number 50, unfortunately i dunno WTF that means, and this is my second mobo, I already RMA'd last one so its not cuz of the board i dont think. Any help, also I cannot overclock to for example 250 and ratio at 8X. Please help, I am going crazy..

Sounds like you need to lower the HT bus multiplyer, try setting it to 4x and then set the bus to 250, this would be 2.4ghz and you probably won't need any extra voltage at that point
