Default A8N-SLI Premium

Just brought a new Mobo and CPU upgrade.

A8N-SLI Premium.
AMD Athlon XP3000+ 1800MHz (real)
2 x 512MB of PC3200 RAM.

Now why cant I overclock this chip? Is the memory holding it back? Cause I know people that have this 939 Socket CPU running at 2500MHZ stable! The most I can get out of it is 2100MHz and after that it reduces my memory speeds to 333Mhz. If I go further then the Mobo reduces the memory speeds down to 266MHz!

Until I get a AMD Athlon FX60 or AMD Athlon XP64 4800+, i'm gonna see how far I can take this baby.

Help me out please??
Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8
