Bein' an Intel made mobo it won't have any overclockin' features. :beer:

Well it's proven to be ultrafast at stock and very stable, but as mentioned if you want to oc your system then get another brand.

Funny though, those Intelmobos often beat all other manufacturors at stock, so they are great for people with no intrest in oc.

i see, so you won't be able to OC that.

No most likely not, but if ya into oc then check out Asus P4P800 with the 865PE chipset, the more reviews I read about it the more impressed I become. That's why I'ma get one for my next project..

Intel are about to launch a new application which will enable the enthusiast to make changes to their Intel desktop board from within Windows. This of course is not necessarily good news for everyone, but if you have an Intel D875PBZ, or D865PERL mainboard you are in luck. You will be able to make some interesting changes from within this attractive and easy to use GUI. It will carry the following feature set:

1 - Easy to use, attractive GUI.
2 - Performance altering speeds, for example memory, FSB etc.
3 - Stress Test, this will put a load on the CPU to see if the system is stable (Testing cooling etc).
4 - Set the fan speed and the speed up thresholds.
5 - Put a logo custom logo on the boot screen. (Saves using the current Splash.exe).

That's wonderful, as they have the fastest stockspeeds and is the most stable boards around and perfect for intense use within servers environments etc, now they also becoming a good choise for tweakers and gamers out there with intrest in oc.. :)

Now you have control over your desktop PC-- You can easily tune, customize, cool, stress, quiet, or test the system. With Intel Desktop Control Center you can improve system stability, enhance performance, and control cooling and acoustic characteristics. Available only on performance and enthusiast Intel Desktop Boards, this dynamic application allows you to do more with your desktop board than ever before.

Intel Desktop Control Center enables you to perform stress tests to verify system stability and to conduct performance testing to measure the impact of system configuration changes. The easy-to-read system gauges provide feedback so you can observe the effects of various system modifications in real-time.

This easy-to-use console dynamically displays temperatures, speed, and usage percentages, allowing you to verify system stability and check performance gains without rebooting into the BIOS.

And once you have tuned the system to your liking, the settings can be stored as presets so you can quicly shift gears between "quiet operation" and "gaming mode".

With Intel Desktop Control Center you're in control.

Tune It
Now you can control performance settings right from your desktop. Fine-tune memory timings, modify chipset parameters, and configure thermal set points. Tune the system just the way you like it and store the settings in single-click presets for different modes of operation, such as quiet mode while composing email or gaming mode when the competition gets fierce.

Customize It
Whether you're an OEM or enthusiast, Intel Desktop Control Center makes it easy for you to configure the system to address your specific needs such as customized cooling parameters and enhanced performance settings,.

Cool It
Balancing the need for adequate system cooling and the desire for reduced fan noise is a difficult task. Now you have the power to choose the temperature at which "automatic fans" turn on or reach full speed. And for even more control, switch from "Auto" to "Manual" and drag the slider until the fan speeds meet your thermal and acoustic needs.

Stress It
The built in stress test helps check the stability of your customized settings by allowing you to conduct "burn-in" testing. Select which tests to perform, the test duration, and test intensity and Intel Desktop Control Center monitors temperature, fan speeds, and performance while simultaneously stressing the selected system components and busses.

Test It
Start with a baseline measurement of system performance. Then fine-tune your adjustments and stress the system to ensure stability. Finally, generate a new baseline and compare to previous configurations to determine relative performance gains in areas of processor, storage, graphics, and memory.

Coming Soon! Check back later for launch details (http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/software/dcc/index.htm).
