I've overclocked it to just under 1.7 GHz by putting the fsb to 160.

If I put it higher it wont boot to windows.

RAM - 2.65 Now 2.70
NB - 1.60 Now 1.65

Can anyone suggest any settings I can change to get anymore out of it.

Does that board have a pci/agp lock? If so, have you locked it?
If it does not, I would up the fsb and try a lower multi as skivvy posted. Set the fsb at 166; this will kick in the divider and lower the pci/agp back to 33/66mzh. Note if you have locked the pci bus, you can disregard the above.
