the mobo has no overclocking options and i was hoping to bump it up to maybe around 2.6-2.8ghz.

What are some problems i will have and how high should the temps go under load?

What computer is it? If anything can do it then setfsb can. Just go to their website and Ctrl+F to see if they have the motherboard or PC supported.

The only way to know is to try it. Some problems (obviously) is the additional voltage needed to O/C and additional heat to deal with. Oh, and you have to know the clockgen for setfsb to work correctly.

The PLL(Clock Generator) chip is on your MB, and allows you some control of the FSB and PCI/PCI-E buses in windows.

The information that SetFSB needs is as follows.

a. the motherboard(/PC) name
b. the chipset name
c. the clock generator name (PLL)

Mega put together a quick list of Setfsb supported PLL's HERE.

I don't see direct support for that MB. You may need to locate the PLL chip on the MB. Here's a guide that may help. Link
