Abit boards are great for OCing, if you are planning on buying it y not go for $20 more for the IC7 Max3 basically same but you get the latest technology in mobo inbuilt cooling check it out.

The IC7 series is one of the best (only rivaled by Asus P4C800 series and DFI 875Pro series) for s478 overclocking. My last IC7 supported up to 270 mhz FSB, non-modded.

I don't get it.. The 3.0's, and above cost a ton, and they don't overclock very good (prescott). I went and bought a 2.4AE (prescott) and I'm owning your OC' with only air cooling? Whats the deal? Is it the Internal clock that makes the huge difference?

Intel performance = higher bus speeds. A 800 mhz FSB 2.4 at stock will outperform a 533 mhz FSB 2.4. Then, of course, there's also HTT on the 800 mhz FSB P4's.
