    its most likely AMD's 'cool and quiet' feature that throttles down your cpu when its not in use or under heavy load. you can change your power management scheme, and or go into your bios and disable it. I have dealt with the ASUS A8N-LA Motherboard on the Compaq Presario SR1xxx NX series,and there is absolutely no OC bios adjustments. If you want to OC it, you will have to do it via a software program. this program should give you control enough to OC via the guess is you should be able to get to about 228Mhz or 2.5-2.6Ghz and thats about it with the 3500+.
    here is the link to the Ntune utility.
