So I cleared the CMOS, got it to boot again. Seems it won't even POST at 500, odd. Booting into windows, though, locked again on the first popup box. Rebooted about 4 more times, locked at exactly the same point. Heard a sound from the speakers then, there would be a windows sound there, so I uninstalled the perfectly-working MX300 sound card, and all the lockups went away. Now why the card works great with my Duron up to almost 1GHz, but not at all with the Tbird, I have no idea. But it seems to run flawlessly now

Oh, the limits so far: I can get it to run almost stable at 1400 at 1.775v...I'm too chicken to push the vcore any higher...I suppose maybe (prolly not quite) 1500 might be there at 1.85v...if you had the stones and the wallet for it...and an iceberg on the HS
