    There are so many reasons why you could be having issues overclocking that thing. You need to list some specific settings, mostly what Vcore and Vdimm you are running and at what timings you have the ram set.

    As for that old P3, you should just look on Ebay for an 800MHz CPU. They are certainly cheap enough and that motherboard should self detect it and run it. Just make sure you know what socket it is, it will be either Slot 1 or Socket370 and you also need to know what FSB (Front Side Bus) frequency it uses, it would either be 100MHz or 133MHz. THose specifications are on the CPU itself. If you look inside your PC and there is a square heatsink with a fan mounted to the motherboard, it is Socket 370. If it is a large black cartridge with a fan mounted on the side, it is Slot 1. Slot 1 CPUs have the specifications written on the top of them around where it says Pentium III. Socket 370 CPUs have the specifications written on the CPU itself and you would need to take the heatsink/fan off. If you do not know how to do this, have someone that does help you. I also suggest upgrading the whole PC, but you could just change the CPU for now. Overclocking it is next to impossible. You would need an aftermarket motherboard just to get some decent options to do that.

    These programs can and do work, but many are so motherboard specific that it's hard to find one that will work with your hardware. Try what was suggested and if doesn't work, Email at the link I gave you, he will ask what error you get when it doesn't work and will use that info to create one that will if at all possible.

    Just be careful when using these programs, it is easy to go too far as some use sliders, I would suggest getting to where you need(800) and no more with stock cooling.
