A 733EB does not overclock that well, but I've seen a lot of people reach at least 825 on the 150MHz FSB.

EB processors do not give you that much headroom in terms of FSB choices since it is already 133MHz. With the P3V4X, it's best to put some sort of cooling on the ICS clock generator chip at the bottom of the DIMM slots to get stable FSBs up around 160MHz.

A 700E would have been a much more flexible choice for overclocking.
