Well, the standard settings to change are obviously:

HT multiplier: set this to 4x if you're within 200-250fsb, and 3x if you exceed 250.

RAM divider: Depending on how far that RAM can go, might as well put on the DDR333 or even the DDR266 divider... Don't be afraid to use a large divider to remain around DDR400 speeds... That way you can keep your timings as tight as possible, which is more beneficial to the A64 platform anyways (seeing as it's DIMM bandwidth is through the roof)

Make sure to lock the PCI bus at 33.3mhz (or whatever's closest) and the PCIe bus around 100-103mhz (you can vary this depending on stability, often 100mhz isn't fully stable, but 101 is)

Disable any spread spectrums first... Try re enabling them if you have instabilities you can't track down. They're normally BAD for overclocking.

And of course the many, many DFI specific settings that don't do all that much Those boards are incredible with what they let you control
