As for the NF7 mods:

http://www.motherboardfaqs.com/content.php?content.15

The CPU you linked to would be good, but this one might be even better. Sometimes the 2600+ overclocks better, sometimes a 2500+ will, it just depends on your luck. But yes, on average I think the 2600+ overclocks higher. But the guaranteed IQYHA stepping is what is even more important. It will give you better chances for a higher overclock.

I'm currently running a Mobile 2600+ @ 2.6Ghz (13x200) and its stable.

So it does depend on luck if you get a good overclocker...

Click on the link I posted and there are three main mods. The volt-mod for the chipset, which there are two ways of doing. A vdimm mod. And lapping the north bridge. I dunno if it would be worth it to do any of them though. The NB is so convexed that I would recomend lapping it to almost anyone though.

post #10 of 12
ditto on what death suggested i have that cpu so far im at 2707 just working on colder cooling , but for the aver ocing the 2600 is good...also for mods im whating for the ocz ddr booster to come out it will get you more volts to your ram so vdimm mod might be a thing in a past nf7-s ver 2 mobo goes up to 2.9 for the memery the ddr booster will let you get up to 3.3 :aacool: and it is compatable with the nf7-s ver 2.0 mobo shawn at ocz still not sure on the price yet tho...
