Overclockable?

Is that mobo OCable? I don't know how to tell one way or the other. I've always bought mainboards that people suggested for OCing.

Not really, it has a sis chipset which are know to be poor overclockers.

It's normal speed is 1.6mhz. Think I could get it up to 1.8? Maybe 2.0 if I'm lucky?

I don't know about the chipset stability, but to be honest, it would depend on the BIOS options--for example, if you can't change the RAM speed multiplier (aka divider), and if you're using crap ram, then no, it's not going to take you very far. Likewise, if you have a voltage-hungry chip and there are limited voltages you can increase to, then also, it's not going to take you very far. I'd say that it's not such a great overclocker, but I've never used it, so I can't say for certain... What were you hoping to use it with?

If you can reach anyone at their tech support who's willing to answer your questions about the BIOS, you could find out. Without knowing that, it's hard to say. It does have an Award BIOS and in my experience, many Award BIOS had advanced settings for RAM and CPU. Granted, this is years ago.
