    Have you joined the L1 bridges? Does your motherboard allow you to change the multiplier either by jumpers of in the bios?

    If so increase the multiplier from 9x to 9.5x or 10x then see if it will boot, load windows and run stable without getting to hot. If you are getting instabilities or it won't boot then you may need a little more core 0 voltage or better heat control. You also may be able to overclock it a bit by raising the fsb also, but probably not as much as with rasing the Multiplier.

    Have a look at this thread of mine for cooling info T-bird 1Gig @ 1.2Gig
