You should watch the voltage & clock push as this board is rated for and designed only for 95W TDP processors max (which means you may be exceeding the limit by unlocking your Athlon II x3 into an x4 and pushing clock speeds).  This might cause performance and testing issues down the road due to the board's low end VRM setup...

Circumstances forced me to go inactive back in 2014. I guess I'm back for 2016, but won't be active much! Cheers!
