I just wanted to comment on how good this *Official* site looks. I love the links that you posted to assist in the overclocking and monitoring of the vitals and the spread sheet of the owners data looks SWEET! I love the looks of the MSI motherboards and I really like the layout. It looks like a great overclocker and with 4 PCIe slots, has lots of room for expansion. I've had my eye on this motherboard and watching for a deal to see just how the AMD stacks up against my Intel core i7.
Kudos for a great site!!
Thanks for the compliments on this thread!
The more the merrier, and for now your i7 will still beat AMD.

Higher NB Freq(cpu-nb freq) the better in performance?
To stabilize the NB Freq we add more CPU-NB voltages?
To get a higher IMC you add more NB Voltage?
WIth a higher NB freq you can get tighter timings?
NB freq will give your more throughput with RAM mostly.
IMC is cpu-NB. NB voltage is for something else altogether but usually you need to give it a small bump when running 4 sticks.
Not sure anyone has confirmed this.
Usually lower RAM freq will give you tighter timings.
