What makes you think i would feel better if you can't overclock the CPU/NB?
At first i could not be stable at more than 2400 too but you just need more volts and know what to adjust, its not only the NB volts that needs to be added but also the CPU/NB volts.
At first i was worried about the NB was getting hot but i prevent that from happening by lowering the GPU to an lower PCI-e X16 slot because it was too close to the NB so it was breathing hot air from the GPU.
Now i am stable at 2600 HT as CPU/NB, 4.8ghz CPU at 1.550Vcore.
Also mega is right about the dead spots because my mobo does not like 12X multipliers but my RAM is set to 2400 with 12X multi and haven't have problems so far.
This board has also huge RAM vdroops, when i set the DRAM voltage to 1.65 in bios i get 1.56 or something in HWINFO64 so i need to set it at 1.7 to get 1.65 on the RAM.
I know for sure you can have also an CPU/NB of 2600, let me know if you want to know my settings to achieve this
