Default Good overclocking Mobo

I have the ASUS A7n8X-X Mobo. Is there anybody else here who has it or had it? Is it supposed to be good for OCing? Would a BIOS update improve a Mobo's OCing ability?

Does BIOS revision make a difference? Would it OC better if I updated the BIOS? I know ASUS is supposed to be good at OC, but I can only get my 2800+ Barton up from the normal 2GHz to 2.1GHz before it becomes unstable. And even then I have to put about 1.7V into it to keep it there. Even when I put 1.8V (that's the max!), I can't get it higher than 2.1!

I don't have an auto OC tool in the BIOS. It's a older Mobo, still uses Socket A and AGP.

the A7N8X is Socket A
I'm pretty sure Abit has made some really good overclocking motherboards for Socket A
