Ga-G41M-Combo overclock problem

Hello Everyone!
I Recently had a major comp failure and had to replace my mobo at low cost. So I ended up with g41m-combo and for the heck can't overclock it a single bit, whenever i change multiplyer or core voltage even a tiny bt it just keep rebooting to previous settings. The same thing with memory. I was thinking maybe there is a hidden lock of some kind but coudn't find anything so maybe someone tried to do something with this mobo and can help me. Cheers

ps. on my old mobo there was no problem with overclocking with the same specs so it must be this one.

my specs:

mobo: GA-G41M-Combo
cpu: E8200 Core 2 Duo 2.66 Mhz
ram: 2x2Gb 1600 ddr3 Corsair

This mobo can't pass 343 fsb..higher then that it will not boot.The fsb wall for this mobo is 344..you cant pass this limit even u have highend compenent..The Combo DDR2-DDR3 is perfect for low FSB cpu..800/1066 But for 1333 its crap board..
I have (E5300) with g41m-ES2L at 3.10Ghz Max Temp at 60C and G41m-Combo at 3.6GHz at 75C..100% stable running with Gigabyte GT 220/value ram pc6400 2g x 2/Intel stock cooler/Cheap PSU Micro ATX 480w :) 
All cheap !!! :)

^ its already been said, that motherboard is poop for overclocking. If you really wanted to you could go on ebay and try to find an nforce based 650i, 680i chipset motherboard. They overclock like champs. But i wouldnt waste the money, id save it for a new system.
