There are some huge holes in there and you can get it to post and boot at like 1600, but it won't run stable. I think you're just expecting too much out of your components.
I don't know. It seems a bit ridiculous that a brand new $65 board can't hit 350Mhz FSB when my 2 year old $80 motherboard could hit 450Mhz with the same exact CPU.

Also, with my Quad (on my P35 board), I can't get anywhere near 450Mhz, no matter what I set the multiplier to... even though it worked with my E6750 at 450Mhz for 2 years.

This is the kind of thing that drives me nuts.
