EPoX 8RDA FSB & Mem Frequency issues

Hello,

I just bought a 8RDA and some PC3000 Kingston HyperX 512MB memory. When I try to increase the FSB over 166, the system will not boot. I get prolonged beeping and it won't even goto bios, I have to pull the battery to reset. I can increase the FSB by 1 yes 1 mhz to 167 and it will boot no problem. Anything over that and it screams at me. I tried increasing the memory voltage by one notch but that didn't work either. I have tried setting the memory frequency well below the FSB freqency and it still has issues with it. I though that the 8RDA was spec'd to 200 mhz FSB and the Hyper X PC300 to 187mhz? Can anyone suggest a methodology to try to increase my FSB and memory frequency? I tried the initial setup with only graphics card, cpu, floppy disk, and HD installed. Any suggestions welcome.

System Config:
EPox 8RDA
512MB PC3000 Kingston HyperX
1700+ AMD Thoroughbred B w/Cooler Master HAC-V81
ATI 9500 PRO Radeon
Enermax case w/Powerup 350w

I don't think it is a MOBO/RAM problem. Maybe your CPU can't handle more (is it @ 2088MHz/167MHz from 1667/133MHz? Thats a awesome overclocking! A A XP 2600+/333MHz!). Try to lower the multiplier to increase more the FSB.

You can press insert ket to power on the system.

And your CPU was spec'd to 133 mhz FSB
