Whats the memory speed for your ram? I would expect at least 500MHZ of OC.

Woah according to some reviews this motherboard does not have sli ability. I looked at newegg specs and on Gigabyte.com and does not say it supports sli. Lol maybe I should get there 4x pci express mobo. ROFL! Maybe this motherboard if the one above doesnt support sli? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131578

just curious, why do you want a P4? if its only for overclocking i think its a bad choice because P4's only rule in extreme overclocking which you probably won't do. i would say you may hit 400mhz+ on stock cooling. have you already bought all your stuff?

If I was you, I would re consider. I am not saying go for AMD, but you should be more interested in the overall performance for what you are doing.

(The opteron 140 and 165's are hitting 2.7ghz currently from 1.8.)
