I saw some screenshots of this and in BIOS and it was breathtaking!

My main questions are: Can this board handle EXTREME overclocking?

I have heard that this board overheats quickly.. Is this true? If this is true is it because of the stock Cooler?

you mean the north bridge? It seems fine for me... I went from 2.2 to 3.7 on my E2200...

I can take some pictures of NB temperature with different voltages if you'd like, but not now lol, school night

The temps are a little higher than most P35 boards but not to any point it would affect overclocking.

Ya dude. Pictures would be great. And yes, the north bridge temps I have heard are high. I am going to try and get a stable 4GHz after multiple tests and hardware specs overview to find out what makes this possible and what keeps it stable while keeping the heat under control with a reasonable budget. - Q6600 "Testing the limits of this fine CPU and it's foundation."
