plus what stepping is it...? my B3 stepping is limited to about 3.00GHz at 375x8 with 1.350v (pencil modded), I just can't get it any higher ATM, but God knows I'm trying...

,,

it's a decent HTPC board with onboard DVI, and it should overclock to over 1600MHz FSB, but that's not all that great, mATX boards usually aren't great overclockers...

the stepping I referred to is the stepping of your cpu, it determines how well it will overclock, my cpu is a Q6600 Be stepping, which doesn't over clock as well as the older G0 stepping chips, the newer G0 stepping Q6600s also don't clock as well as the older version, but still better than the B3...
