I have the Asus SK8N with the A64 FX 51 1007 bios Corsair reg ecc pc 3200 match 2 x 512 memory sticks Thermaltake 480 power supply BFG 6800 GT 256 Liquid cooled CPU and gpu.
I really get the feeling that the 940 chip set was never meant to be oc. From what I read, the SK8N fsb is not locking. So does this mean the pci slots and the agp slots voltages are unlock or just the pci slots?
I am not sure if there is a point to ocing the memory.
How about the multiplier? Will increasing that affect any thing else?
I have had my cpu up to 15 x 200 giving me 3000 and running temperature's around 35 c. @ 2,2 ghz's my temperature is 32.
Anyone else with the SK8N have any success in Overclocking or good tips.

The drawback of buying the higher end cpu's is they are already clocked close to the max. I don't believe there is a lock on the agp or pci with the socket 940 mobo's(but i could be wrong). Although the multiplier is unlocked upwards i still don't see much overclocking potential without some serious cooling.
