That Zotac board is terrible for overclocking, but luckily the E5700 doesn't require a high FSB for high clocks. With 266 FSB (1066) you are already at 4.0Ghz.

Thats my plan. Surely the board will at least do its lowest spec'd fsb. Heck, I may even wc the north bridge for the hell of it, since i do have spare block for that as well.
