Just wondering if there was a work around!
That board you can't OC at all in the bios but you might be able to use SetFSB
& use the mobos PLL chip to raise the FSB speed on it to OC...
Just look though the list of supported PLL chips.
The only ones you can OC now in the bios are the Intel D975XBX (Badaxe) mobo's & up.
So yes, there are a few mobos that Intel puts out that supports OCing in the bios.
I'm using the D975XBX2 mobo aka Badaxe 2
, but the i975X chipsets that are in these boards are not good overclockers at all & make you work for higher clock speeds to be stable even with a lot of voltage! ( I know, I've spent hours trying to OC this board higher without using a TON of voltage but it don't work)
Not to mention the i975X chipset don't support the 45nm processors, so no Wolfy's for this! RRRR
I run my system 24/7 @ 3.30GHz
with a E6700 at default vcore, but have had it up to 3.67GHz
...not very stable though.
And, while I'm at it my Vantage score running Windows 7.
When I do finally have the money for another major upgrade it's going to be around the new Core i7 CPU's.
