With this motherboard you can easily overclock any LGA 775 processor.

Just short pin2 and pin3 for OC800 jumper, start your PC and voala - your FSB800 CPU is overclocked 33% above its nominal clock speed. You can overclock your CPU even further using the OC Tuner utility. I've managed to overclock Celeron430 1.8GHz CPU to 3.06GHz (FSB340 or 1360MHz effective) rock stable! Dude, it's 70% overclock!
