    The CPU has an unlocked multiplier. How high are you looking to overclock it, and most importantly are you wanting to O'C for benchmarking? Because I have the same chip and board as you and it runs beautifully @4Ghz. It ran ok for a while @4.4Ghz but for some reason becme a little unstable after a while and to be honest with you, I could not find any difference in day to day stuff between 4 and 4.4Ghz except for power draw and heat. So if your stable at 4Ghz then you have done well!

    I helped a buddy with his 965 and we did some benching with it and there was gains from 4 to 4.5 but like rob stated, on day to day... all we had were frustrations on dealing with the temps. he was on air as well.
