I've just put together
Asus M2N8-VMX socket AM2
AMD Athlon X2 3600 AM2
2 x 512M PC6400 Elixir DDR2 800 SDRAM
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 PRO PWM
I've managed to get it happy running 2 instances of Prime95 with
the clock @ 250 MHz, giving CPU clock of 2375 MHz.
The CPU temperature is staying in the low 40's centigrade.
I had to set the RAM to 667 in the Bios to achieve that speed.
The only issue I have is that when I restart the system it will
sometimes give a BIOS overclocking failure as it restarts.
This failure is intermittent and occurs with the clock as low as
218 MHz. It also fails with the multiplier @9 & 220 MHz.
Any clues about how to get it to restart reliably with a better
overclock than 218 MHz ?

You didn't mention HT speed. if you are going to clock it at 250MHz, you
should lower the base Ht speed to 4x from 5x. That may be the problem.
