    In the Frequency/Voltage Control section, enable the PCIE spread spectrum option.
    I can't find any manual for your mobo outside of SATA/RAID setup, but it looks like the above option should be it. Good luck!

    Well, It didn't help. This board must have some flaw in it's design or something, but then again, it's not exactly an overclockers board.

    Yeah, the sample boards used on the reviews for that mobo didn't clock well either, and that's good indication the final consumer board won't be any better. However, I do love my Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT PCIeX GPU it clocks really well.

    A nice easy to work with board for overclocking would be a MSI NEO4 Platinum. Excellent options/overclockability. A serious overclockers board is of course the DFI Ultra-D.

    Yeah well, I was a little blinded by all the bling bling that came with my current mobo... Although I wasn't expecting to overclock much when I bought it, either. I won't be buying a new one until I decide to go for AM2, and that'll be in a year or two.

    Agree with casecutter if you're not a Hardcore OC'er MSI is da bomb. I bought my Soltek K8T890-Pro(Via chipset) last spring when 939sk mobos were few and spendy and I couldn't afford $175USD for the DFI Ultr-D(Nforce chipset). Now that DFI can be had for the same $110USD I spent on the Soltek I'm not as impressed with it as I was last year.

    I've got my Athlon64 Winnie OCed to a stable 280x9 @ 2520Mhz on air, and I'm converting to custom WC which should allow me to push this 300Mhz HTT/FSB board to it's maximum limit °_° So, I too can afford to await the AM2 release.
