I almost got that board myself, but when I finally got my tax return, it was out of stock. So I wound up with an Asus P6T. Mine does fine leaving everything at base voltage and just raising the bclock to 167. I'm getting EE performance out of my $200 chip. You should be able to do this much at least. Base clock, that's 3.3Ghz, 3.5Ghz with turbo boost, and 3.66Ghz on single core processes.
