Talking about overclocking of this board, I downloaded BIOS from this thread

(originated from this thread: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1216020&page=2)
This F3A BIOS has volt adjustments for SB/NB, RAM and CPU. This BIOS has a minor issue when waking up from stand-by mode that the CUP multiplier will be reduced to X5. But it can be corrected by using this small program:Central Brain Identifier (http://cbid.amdclub.ru/). The CPU multiplier can be tweaked from this program, from X5 to your default.
This is my overclocking result, although I can overclock to 3G (333X9) by adding some volt to CPU, but I like to keep the CPU cool.
BIOS setting: NB/SB + 0.15 V, RAM + 0.5V, CPU: 1.275 V (default 1.30)
CPU: Opteron 1210
Heatsink: AMD heatpipe for Opteron 165
RAM: Kingston 667 1Gx4
PSU: Seasonic SII 380 W
Case: Silverstone SG-03
Video: onboard
