And it's very likely that non of the software overclocking solutions will have a PLL option for your board anyway...so short answer, you are not likely to be able to overclock at all with that motherboard.

"400x9" means "Front Side Bus x CPU Multiplier"

Can you suggest me low price Microatx motherboard + heatsink fan cooler

Unfortunately, that's a tough one because of the older socket platform (775). Most boards are fetching $60-90 retail, because they have been fazed out for awhile now...and your options are not going to be great, usually only budget chipset boards. Your best bet is to buy used, perhaps using Ebay or local for sale ads to locate a board. All I can suggest is to go by chipset...any non-OEM motherboard is likely to be able to overclock at least a bit though. What I would look for though, personally, is anything with these chipset, and just find something with a price you like.

There is likely ones here I will miss, so hopefully someone else can fill them in, but here's a list of decent overclocking chipset -

650i
680i
750i
780i
790i
X35
X38
x48
P35
P45

So just look for a used board, with one of those chipset...and then perhaps check some reviews on the exact board you're looking at before putting down any cash. Or even double check back here with the board you want to order and get some opinions from OCN.

Those chips could normally hit around 4ghz with decent cooling.

I wouldnt say normally. 4.0ghz for a q6600 was up there with the best. I have a very low vid 1.2125 one that would take some serious tweaking to get 4.0ghz stable on a top end board. 3.6ghz. 3.2-3.6ghz was more of a normal range.

To the OP, if the board allows OC and the cpu is a G0 version it should work fine. Im still running one in an abit ip35 pro at 3.2ghz.. still good cpus

Investing in S775 is a total waste of money at this point. You are overpaying for underperforming parts. Older does not always mean cheaper and in this case.

Show me how you can do better than the $40 it would cost for new board...if you can do a new motherboard+CPU and perhaps RAM for that, that will outperform overclocked Q6600, I am sure he'd hit the order button as soon as you share with us.

I found used Asus P5KPL-AM rev. 1.02g which supports both 775 socket and Core 2 Quad.
Chipset is Intel® G31 Intel ICH7
FSB is 1600*/1333/1066/800 MHz (*1600 is overclock speed)

What do you think? Can I use it for overclock?!

I don't see why not, however as before, these are old boards, they could have issues.

Someone says that power delivery of motherboard has to be special requirements, this motherboard has 3 phase (2+1) power without heatsinks

Since no one has asked yet i am going to ask what PSU do you have in that system?
Note that the PSU will hold your overclocks back if its not very good.

Better PSU = higher more stable overclocks.
