I do believe some in here have it.
Hit the "Search" and go Advanced, highlight the AMD section and put the model number in the search field

Depends what you are overclocking with.

If you have some Tccd and a Processor that doesnt require over 1.55Vcore you should be fine. For the price you cant beat it IMO. I like mine alot but plan on gettinga n sli board because i like to throw my moneys away.

Im sitting at 260x10 with the ram at 218mhz@cas2 . This is after the vcore mod and without the vdimm mod. I cant hit 260mhz cas2.5 on 2.7vdimm...sadface but so far i'd give it a 4.5/5.

edit:if you have ram that loves Volts the vdimm mod gives 3.1vdimm to the ram. So that could work too!

I like mine so far Running 280x10 at 1.45V. I did the mod and you could push up to 1.55 if needed.
at 1.55, i had it stable and 2.95 and was able to run benchies at 3.0 but not Prime stable. Just a tad bit more and i could have done it.... to me the difference between 2.9 and 3.0...un noticeable.

for the money, great board. If you have money... get something like the nf4. I'm also planing on getting nf4 because i finall have a pci-e gfx card but not anytime soon as this board has treated me so well. I was glad i could upgrade to 7800gt form 6800gt agp for $20 and not have to switch board. this board has been a blessing to me.

i'm also waiting for What? to throw some moneys at me. and since he lives right around the corner here, i can swap em off the floor if needed

I like the board, i mainly got it becuase of budget and not being able to do the whole CPU, Mobo, GFX at the same time. i have only oced 200mhz at mo due to my anoerexic memory. I have seen a thread on a diff forum were people have reached 400htt (<--not a typo) im not sure if its allowed to post links to other forums?

well i have this board as well i got it a we while ago dont know if i have a fault with my board or not but when i switch my pc on at the wall socket all the fans come on for like 1/2 sec and then go of , when i tried to overclock it something went wrong dont know but sent the board back and got a new one i got my 3200+ up to 2.3 ghz very stable could have went furhter but not 2.4ghz
i didnt not carry out the vmod as i just got it but might in future if im not bothering about blowing somthing up i would give it 3/5 for overclocking but with the vmod and the price you pay i would easily give it 4.9/5 great for the money

i think enzo maybe hitting the bios cap, as ASRock are a subsidery (sp?) of Asus there bios's can come capped so they do not overclock as well as there pricier Asus counterparts, a modded bios mayhelp further your OC but also diminish your warranty.

I like this board alot. I just picked it up last week. It came with 1.4 bios, which still sucks for overclocking. You still can adjust the core past 1.45, unless you do the hack. I just adjusted the HTT to 217, and everything has been running stable @ 2.4

Otherwise the feature on the board are great, agp, pci express.

New here, but...

I have this board, bought it refurbed for $43 from newegg about 2 months ago. Great little board, I would highly recommend using the OCWB1 bios you can get over on ocworkbench.com in the ASrock forums, so you can go over 274 FSB. I'm able to run my Opteron 146 on it at 2.8GHz with zero problems as long as I have the MA timings set to 2T, 1T causes some weird reboots when you least expect it, like opening email, and going to websites with Flash animation. This is a known issue for quite a few people on ocworkbench, so you can find out more there. Other problems include a pretty flaky vcore reading and some limited overclock settings.
Yesterday I replaced mine with a DFI Infinity SLI, and spent about half an hour trying to get back to the 2.8GHz I was running on the ASrock board, unsucessfully so far. I'm gonna work on it a little more tonight, may end up going back to the ASRock board tho because I've heard the DFI boards don't care much for Value Ram, even tho my Corsair Brainpower UCCC PC3200 1GB sticks easily ran at 250GHZ on the ASrock board. Go figure, I guess sometimes you get more that what you pay for, and sometimes you don't get much at all.
