c'mon, the p43 'wall' isn't set at 420mhz or some nonsense like that.
it can be anywhere from 417-440 or slightly more, and there are ways to push it depending on BIOS options - that's why I asked if max FSB was ever determined.
You very well might be hitting the wall on that board, but it is not a specific thing on all P43 boards.

"CPU Clock Ratio"
Do you not have this setting? If so, is it adjustable downward? That's what I meant by finding out your max FSB.
If you reduce this and run a higher FSB with a lower multi, you can find the high limits of your FSB and see if it's the chip holding you back or the board or some other factor.
There are other things I've seen work on P43 boards like setting the PCI-E frequency to 104mhz. The '104' tweak. Make sure to have all the weird power save states disabled (C1E)
All, if you're going to present enthusiast advice as canon, at least be complete. I realize it's still unlikely to push much past 420mhz, but we should be giving our best effort instead of just saying 'CAN'T BE DONE NO ONE HAS EVER DONE IT LA LA'
Edit: Also, don't push it past 1.4 or so, but try a CPU Termination of 1.3v. More commonly known as VTT, but labeled funny here. Looks like no actual NB volt tweaks, so this might be the best you can do on this board. Good luck.
