Couple fans on the NB, the 2 heatpipes going around the mosfets helps move the heat around well as well as the big SB heatsink near the bottom being part of the heatsink arrangement. Its one of a few of many boards I have owned in the past that I can really swear by so far.
On a 950 you can use a 23x multi, I think that will likely be your strongest OC'ing ratio since it takes the most strain off your board.

My board gives up around the 210 mark, I've had it up to 220, but not stable.
