PSU: X-Power 400 Watt - 20/24 pin-12v-4 pin-Pci-E 6pin
Cooling: Water cooled, 2 x 120mm (front and rear)

Mobo: Epox 9NDA3I nForce3 (POWER BIOS for "easy" overclocking, haha)
Proc: AMD FX-55 San Diego Core 90nm (Driver: AMDK8.SYS)

Mem: Corsair 1GB (2x512) PC3200 (200Mhz) CMX512-3200XML
(Cas#Lat:2, RAS# to CAS#: 2, RAS#2, TRAS:5)

Graphics: ATI Radeon 9600 series
OS: Windows XP SP3 with all updates.

No knows problems, system very stable with air and water.
I highly doubt your Epox motherboard will net a good OC. For a 3Ghz goal (which will be VERY hard to get) you need the BEST s939 mobo for its generation, and that would be HANDS DOWN the DFI NF4 SLi-DR motherboard . Using bios 704-2bt and some TCCD ram, Your chp will be the only limit.
