What max speed can I reach overclocking the xp2700?
Will an a7n8x perform better than an a7v8x-x? The a7v8x-x is much cheaper.

On air, you can probably reach between 2.3 and 2.4GHz. Keep in mind it's stock clock is 2.17GHz, but If you drop the multi and raise the fsb, the performance will be better. Since the price has dropped so much, it's not too bad of a deal currently, but just about every 1700+ DLT3C JIUHB is performing as well, and for half the price (I just bought one myself).
Yes, A7N8X is a better board than the A7V8X. Nforce2 is a much better chipset.Case: Cooler Master HAF XM

I appreciate your answer. What makes the "1700+ dlt3c jiuhb" such a great overclocker?
I'm aware it's tbred B, but the 2700 is tbred B as well. Also the 1700 Jiuhb's stock clock is approx. 1.5Ghz, right? Therefore, its clock is increased by almost a 1Ghz? That's alot.

yes but its just a much much better chip to "overclock", the default of 1.5ghz doesnt matter it can overclock ALOT mroe then the 2700+. read around on the forums u'll see most ppl are getting atleast 2.3ghz with any 1700+ Tbred-b...New Intel rig. need sorting out before adding specs!

i used to have a 2700 & i got it to 2.41 stable, not a great ocing chip, but a great overall chip nonetheless

I guess the max speed you can get an xp2700 to all depends on your cooling method
Im running mine at the moment as per my sig
I can do x12 on the multi and hoping for x12.5 after some more testing.
