Man, ditch that mobo. You need a high end DFI or ASUS to get a reliable O/C. Until then you're grasping at straws and it just ain't worth it.

For reference I can get as high as 320mhz w/divider on this DFI SLI-DR. 300mhz is a happy medium without extreme cooling mods.

Any of the DFI Lanparty or Infinity's would do you just fine.
