  1. My crystal ball is foggy, but I think you won't. The 2400 is locked, and the H61 chipset doesn't support OCing.

    That's not totally accurate. You can adjust the multiplier with that board, but the BCLK is locked (just checked the manual), but that really doesn't mean anything with a 2400.

    The board also has OC Tuner (Asus' Auto OC), too.

    Is that right? Is it the specific mobo or all H61? I've only used P67 boards.

    I think it's a mobo specific thing, but I've seen it on a few other H61's as well.
