    Ok then either Belarc Advisor and/or Sandra should give us the hardware details that we require (motherboard, memory, etc,....) ;)

    Yes that should be enough and with that Intel motherboard I can tell ya that overclocking is out of the question as Intel do not supply the necessary overclocking features in the BIOS needed. :(

    To use SoftFSB ya need to find out the pll chip part number but with no voltage adjustments it will still be a hard hard job to do.
