That means the board will let you overclock better than some other boards. These boards have more settings at smaller increments. Which really let you push your hardware. Someone probably got a record overclock on a cpu. It's really more marketing then anything. Extremely high overclocks require more cooling. Air just doesn't cut it at after a certain point.

When you overclock your CPU you're overclocking your motherboard too, Unless you have an unlocked multiplier and raise that only.
