    It could be the ram but it's most likely just because the chipset can't take it. Most people dont get their kt133 chipsets over 115ish....that's as far as I ever got my asus A7v.

    He's using a KT133A so I would think that 116 should be no problem. What sort of crashes are you getting? It would either suggest that the ram can handle it, or that the cpu doesnt like that high a speed....

    Maybe your PCI devices or hard drives can't take the overclock..
