    Intel is for stability, but I was wondering how high I can possibly go? Extreme Tech reported its only four percent don't tell me its so....

    iv egot no experience of using the intel boards so i cant say how far it will overclock but the intel boards arent designed for overclocking so you probably wont get far if any

    Well I won't tell ya so and further more I won't tell ya that ya don't have a hope in hell unless Intel makes this program available for it's motherboards. In fact I won't even tell ya that ya should've bought another brand name mobo usin' the same chipset. :p

    Some of the earlier Intel motherboards I have worked with (Socket 370) had a special key combination you could do at boot to access a special manufacturer's menu with options for changing the system FSB and default RAM timings. I'm not sure if this is still possible or what the key combination was, still might be able to find something on the Intel Developer forums or Google :)

    Advice, sell the motherboard, buy an ASUS P4P800 and install the new BIOS revision, that way you can enable PAT and HT, shouldn't have any trouble reaching 2.8GHz if my girlfriend's 2.6C can reach 3.1GHz

    Your RAM is your limiter. Depending how good it is, you can crank it to 3600mhz+.

    I have mine at 3000mhz idling at 26c, doesnt break a sweat. Cranking it up soon.

    U have an intel chipset based board, the actual intel boards will only go 4%. The other boards with the intel 865 and 875 chipsets will be much more overclockeable. Intel dosent make overclocking boards, they make stable workstation and server boards.

    Oops, didnt see "Intel" motherboard.

    I would highly recommend an ASUS P4P800, it will perform much better (top scoring board and its 865PE) and its only $119.99 at newegg.

    Just air, Vantec Aeroflow (a very nice unit btw).

    The ratios are done with the 266/320/400 settings.

    266 = 3:2
    320 = 5:4
    400 = 1:1

    Also make sure you get the latest BIOS (currently 1009) from www.asus.com
