Startup problem after OC.

I just oc my CPU (E8400) to 3.4ghz , just by setting the FSB in the bios. PCIE Freq set to 100. Others settings at auto. During startup, my comp fan just spins for 2-3 without entering POST then it will just stop spinning for few seconds then start to spins again n POST. Here is my
pc spec

E8400 E0 Stepping
Asus P5P43TD
Kingston DDR3 1333- 3Gb (I think it is a normal RAM, not extreme version)
Vantec Ion 2+ 700W

Hope there will be a solution for it as I'm very curious about what happened. I did set the CPU over voltage to +50mv and also the Vtt to 1.2. But it still gives me problems. Just wondering will it be the mobo problem? Or maybe I did set sth wrongly? I tried to google about my motherboard info on oc but still cant find any info on it. Hope someone here can guide me tru this problem. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with your PSU? Are you confident of its quality and stability?
