You have a 1066MT/S FSB as other Pentium D has 800 and like every EE, you have the unlocked CPU multiplier.
Other than that you have the usual HT, EM64T and VT (not VT-x), but no EIST.
You should run it pretty high with the unlocked CPU multiplier, 4Ghz is possible.
But these Presler XE are known to be EXTREMELY HOT and consum alot of power.
But your case might be a bit better since you have a 965 which is a C1 stepping. If you have a B1, then it burns.

While I know this isn't much help on the topic, there are some really great CPU's for extremely cheap. I got 3 E3300 processors with motherboards for $45 for each pair. The processors overclock to 3.6Ghz easily and are quite good performers.

Yes you can simply change your multiplier, but that doesn't mean you don't have to bump your voltages, you still have to follow the usual overclock guide to gain stability.
