You might also want to try some other settings besides FSB. Many of the
newer motherboards tend to include "overclocker" settings for all sorts
of components (FSB, memory timings, memory speed, voltages, etc.) and
having any one of these wrong can make for a very unstable system.
Unfortunately, the "default" settings aren't necessarily right, either.
(I have a new motherboard whose default settings "undervolt" the AGP
bus. That was an annoying problem to track down. Yours is more likely
a memory timings/speed/voltage issue, but the point is that the defaults
may not be appropriate.)
