Default Motherboard Processor Speed Restriction

Is there anything in the given statistics of a motherboard that says what the maximum amount of processor speed it will take is? I know from another poster that any 3200+ will work on any S939 mobo at it's assigned speed, however, since my processor is a Venice, it practically begs to be overclocked. I'm wondering how far I will be able to OC it with my mobo (I want to get to around 2.6).

Athlon 64, Socket 939, nForce3 Ultra, 4GB DDR, 2000MHz FSB

Anything in there tell what the max speed is? Any way to figure it out using something?

Well, a better mobo will OC farther than a cheap mobo, but nothing will tell you its "max" speed. Most likely though, you will run into cpu and RAM limits before you max out the mobo.
