Default Asus A8N-E - low HTT speed

Hey guys.
I'm newbie when it comes to overclocking, in fact this is my first try.
I'm trying to overclock this system:

Asus A8N-E motherboard (nForce4 Ultra) with the latest BIOS
Athlon 64 3800+ Venice
7900GT gpu
2 x Corsair CMX512 PC3200 DDR @ 3.0, 3, 3, 8
Thermaltake Pourepower 460watt psu.

So I'm following the AMD Athlon 64 General Overclocking Guide found at this site (great guide!) and I'm at the part where you are supposed to check the max HTT speed that the motherboard can handle.
So I have set the CPU multiplier from the default 12 down to 10, set the RAM at 200mhz (that's the lowest I can set it to in the BIOS), and set the HT/LTD multiplier to 3x.

So here's the problem. I can't set the HTT above 230mhz. When I do I can't boot into Windows.
So something is wrong here right?
The A8N-E is supposed to be a high quality overclocking board. I've read several reviews that said it was good for overclocking and it even says "advanced overclocking features" on the box.
So then I surely should be able to get higher than 230mhz?
Could this have something to do with the PCI-express or PCI bus not being locked?
When I look in the bios it says that the PCI-express bus is set to 100mhz and the PCI bus to 33,33 mhz.
So do I have to do something else to lock them or what?

Any help is appreciated!

Nevermind, it works now. Strangely enough when I gave it another try today I got the HTT speed up to 260mhz so the problems solved.
