  1. Intgel make great CPU's and chipsets - but have never been known to make a great mobo for overclocking.
  2. There likely not good boards for overclocking.

    However your problem may be that when you raise your fsb, your also raising your rams speed. At some point the ram is going to reach its maximum point and the machine will fail overclock.

    If you have 800mhz ram, then make sure when you raise your fsb that you unlink the cpu/fsb or change the dimm ratio so the ram stays at or under 800mhz. If your hitting 850 or 900 it will cause the overclock to fail.

    Hi I have the cpu overclocked now at 3.05 now, temp is under 120 when running PerformanceTest. should i try highr than where i'm at 3.05? and i've got ram thats not OCed. I set it at 800mhz then i was able to oc cpu after that. i need settings for bios to OC ram. and is there any benefit to OC ram? my bios has a no. of settings to set ram at but i can't find anything on this site on ram settings.
