I can only be sure when I have the new motherboard. it's plain morning here and I'm going to buy it in 1 hour, so I'll post something related to the other motherboard later.
I almost certain that you will have these options in your new Asus mobo.
Happy hunting/buying

Well, I bought the motherboard but now i have one minor problem. The X800GTO that I was supposed to buy too was out of stock. I had already put it in my system specs as I was so sure I would buy it today, but it seems that the site was a bit outdated because it was "in stock" on the site, and when I go to the store they say "out of stock".

So I can't test the motherboard right now, cos it doesnt have a AGP slot for the Radeon 9200 I still have (i wasnt expecting it to have ). But they ordered the X800gto specially for me and it shoul come by the end of the week .

Anyway I have the mobo in my hands and it has an EnOrMoUs manual that explains all its features and other things (the overclocking features too). So I guess that now I have a good bedtime reading until the end of the week .
And btw here are some of the settings i can change that are specified in the manual:

[some ASUS features]
-AiBooster
-AI Overclocking
---Overclock options
-AI NOS
---NOS mode
-----Turbo NOS
-----Twin Turbo NOS
[some non-ASUS features]
-Memory voltage
-Chipset core voltage
-CPU Vcore voltage
-FSB termination voltage
-CPU frequency[XXX] (lol)
-DRAM frequency
-PCI-E frequency
-PCI clock sync ratio
-etc...

So I think thats enough configurations to mess with. At least theyre a lot more than ASrock's settings. If you want to make any comment on any of these options (specially those ASUS-specific), I'll appreciate. At least any other thing I could do with this to help achieving better overclocking?

As I said: "I was almost certain that you would have these options in your new Asus mobo."
Good luck with the card and keep us posted when/if you get it and you decide to embark on your long overclocking journey.

maybe I overreacted about the temps, FULL load, max temp was 48... avarage 46... that's hot, isn't it?

Compare that with my temps and you'll change your mind.

Btw I have restored the FSB and all the settings to default, and my cpu (now running at 2923MHz) shows a temp of 48º-50º when I'm doing nothing (pretty much the same temp that when it was overclocked), but this time when I compress a file it doesnt jump right away to 75º. It stays below 60º-65º max.

Even so that's not a "really" decent temperature for this kind of cpu, and with its stock speed, so I'm really hoping that it might be the placement of the Heatsink, or some lack of thermal compound. OR these motherboard's sensors are broken! (hopefuly).
(note that I'm still not using the new motherboard).

50C is pretty high for an idle Prescott. 40C would be more like it.
Did you remove/re-install the heatsink or has it been on eversince you installed for the first time ?
What thermal compound are you using ? Is it the one that came attached to it in the form of a thermal pad or did you apply something else ?
When installing the heatsink did you apply pressure on the pins in a diagonal way to make sure it would be entirely in contact with the cpu ?

I did it a couple of times during the last year, because I was so unsure the Hsf was well mounted (the 4 Hsf pins didn't make the same noise when I mounted it).

Yes, its the one that came attached.

I just followed the instructions that came with the processor, when I mounted the HSF. The only thing I can say is that if I had made more pressure to fit the pins in the holes, I think the mobo would break. BTW, the pins enter vertically, not diagonally, or were you meaning something else?

Everytime you remove the heatsink you need to replace the thermal compound. If you removed it a couple of times without renewing the thermal compound then I'd say it's time to do so. Get yourself Arctic Silver 5 if you can and use it.
Clean your compound from both the heatsink and the cpu using something like Isopropyl Alcohol and a Q-tip.

Yes I'm aware of that
What I meant was that you should press with your fingers on the pins that are diagonally opposed. If you check the attached picture it means press on pins labeled A then on pins labeled B.

I saw somewhere that if the heatsink still has a visible thermal material, we shouldn't apply more. I dont know if that is really true, but I rather apply some thermal compound than not to do so. Anyway, it can only be beneficial for my proc. And I can get Artic Silver 5 (there were Artic Silver ceramic(cheaper) and Cooler Master Premium (cheaper) too, btw)

I just understood the word "alcohol" in there. Do you mean some type of alcohol than the normal one I have at home? (sry, i'm not too familiar with some terms. Even with the "Q-tip", but I googled it and I have lots of Q-tips after all. )

In that point, you are helping me alot. That's only because the last "couple of times" I remounted it, the board was already in the case, so I was not having a lot of space to press the pins 2 by 2 diagonaly. This may be a possible cause for my temp problems (I'll be aware of that next time ).
