Interestingly, I went to 3btech's site and looked at the configuration possibilities and they only offer AGP video cards for a PCI-e motherboard. Seems like a problem and you might consider going elsewhere just because of this glaring error.

Just a thought.

The Opteron165 seems to be an OverClocker favourite.

The MSI K8N Neo4-F is basically an MSI K8N Neo4-Platinum with only a single GB_LAN and only one SATA controller. Other than that they are identical so there is no reason why this mobo can't be used to overclock. If I am not mistaken, MSI even include a feature called D.O.T. (Dynamic Overclocking Technology) that lets you get the system to overclock itself to safe levels.
