I understand why to overclock CPU and graphics cards but why overclock a motherboard? What benefits does it have?

Thanks!

I don't actually think that would be possible. if it is it might add so processing power to the integrated sound or something like that. if it was possible it wouldn't really add anything but heat

You can overclock various parts of the motherboard, but I've never heard of overclocking the motherboard in general. I had an old server board where I needed to overclock the bridge (forget north of south) to enable SLI without crashing. Actually, I think I upped the voltage... Anyhow, I don't think there are any good reasons beyond that to overclock a motherboard. Just the components.

There's nothing to over clock. Where did you get that idea?
