Alright, I just got paid and I purchased the q9550 from Newegg.com so hopefully I will get that fairly soon for a brand new cpu on my system, it'll be great since I also got a monstrous new game called Armed Assault 2 and it taxes my system by a large degree.

You'll never reach 4250Mhz with a Q9550... all I'm saying is its a great if not THEE best 775lga Quad Core overclocking mother board, hands down in the 775lga market.
Wow, I don't think I'll need an overclock that big. Will I even see any benefits in games from going up so high with an OC?
typically no.. not unless your running a multi gpu platform.

And even then its not as sensitive.
