it's a decent am3 motherboard I don't think the motherboard itself would be the source of your problem.
I have had poor experience overclocking with patriot ram though.

However, that's just me it seems to treat some people fine.

Your next step would be to learn the bios for that specific motherboard as well as how to reset it manually (in case you screw up)
