Are you lumping all Nvidia chipsets in with your sweeping generalization, or limiting it to a few? Cause I don't know about you, but I think getting over a 1000MHz overclock out of my Nvidia 650i chipset seems pretty good!

And ShadowGun, with that motherboard only being able to take memory up to 667MHz you may have a tough time getting much of an overclock out of that particular setup since your only option to OC is through increasing the FSB since you don't have an unlocked multiplier on your processor. Also I see you have Value Ram, which is going to further limit how high you can increase it. I wouldn't expect a lot from that, honestly.

Yea I am able to get my E8400 well over 4.0 and into the 4.2-4.3ish area(albeit not for long) but it is doable on my "lowely un-over-clock-able NVidia board" . I believe that if you have quality components to match it then you can get some nice OC's out of these things.

But yea Ceedub its going to be tough . Also do you know which chipset you have the 570 or 590? cuz if you have the 590 you can take up to 800 mhz RAM and this will really open your options up. We will try to get ya there tho...

Nvidia Chipset 650i is pretty crappy but i use it myself and achieve over 1ghz oc on my E7200. I'll be getting a new Mobo come christmas.

Is that the 570i chipset?

P5N-E SLI Should be 650i Nividia Chipset

If it's just the P5N-SLI it's the 570 chipset. I use to have one of those boards, and they aren't very good OC'ers. It would only take my E4400 to 2.6Ghz before the board maxed out.
Of course, YMMV, but in general they are not good OC'ers..

And Nvidia chipsets lately have been really good OC'ers. My 680i board took my E6320 (1.86Ghz stock) to over 3.5Ghz.
Now if that's not a good OC, I don't know what is...

790i would require you to upgrade your ram as well.

As for which voltage to up, look for "CPU vCore" or something along those lines.
