Help needed with 8RDA+ FSB

My friend's system is the following :

Barton 2500+
512Mb OCZ PC3200 Rev.2 CAS2
ATI 9100
120Go GXP 8mb

He can't get passed 195Mhz FSB, even at relaxed timings.
The northbridge is an A3 revision.

Does anyone have an A3 revision that gets passed 195-200Mhz?

Do you guys have any tips?

Thanx in advance!

Happy overclocking!
Epox 8K5A3+ // T-Bred @ 11.5 x 200
2x256Mb Samsung PC2700 @ CAS 2.5
Maxtor DM+ 9 160Gb
SB Live! 5.1
Leadtek A250TD LE VIVO 275/275

try upgrading nb cooling to a vanteq with arctic silver 3 thermal paste. Ram sinks and active cooling on the mosfets and some sort of cooling on the sb too (the larger passive sink from the vanteq worked well for me)

If the system passes memtest86 and prime95 at 200MHz FSB but fails in 3D apps/games such as 3Dmark 2001 then you need to do a VDD mod to increase the chipset voltage.
