    The clock generator for the 945GCT-xx should be either RTM866-485 or ICS9LPRS419DFLF, both of which are supported by the latest 2.x version of SetFSB.

    The best option for overclocking that CPU/mobo combo is going to be a BSEL pad-mod which will increase the FSB from 200 to 266. I seem to recall the 2160 I played with not needing a voltage bump at that speed.

    There are a few guides on the forum, just search BSEL.
