    I have an AsusTek P4B-LX board (Micro ATX).

    I was overclocking it.

    It has a stock default of 1.8 Ghz (i've done tests, and it isn't overclock, or underclocked).

    well, i went ot over clock it.

    but i can only seem to get up to 2.0 Ghz

    My board supports 2.4 Ghz

    but my CPU seems to have only a maximum of 2.0 Ghz

    I even checked in Sandra2004. it says that the maximum speed of my CPU ius 2.0 Ghz, but that my board supports 2.4 Ghz.

    am i just gonna have to settle for this overclock? or is there something i can do.

    Cuz i can definatley go higher...my Tempurature issue is in tip-top-shape. im at 93F right now at 2.0 Ghz with my FSB at 4x111 (that's 444 Mhz it says in sandra) my Ram is also O/c'd from PC133 to PC148

    It's probably your memory failing on the overclock. If it is pc133 most won't run higher than that. You could try upping your memory voltage .1 if your bios support it. Or get some HS ram I beleive it was called, but it only ran at like 150
