Check the model on their website, it will tell you if it's adjustable or not.

Per the manual I just downloaded for your board off Asus's FTP site you can not overclock with that board.

When I looked at the picture that you supplied, I thought that I saw dipswitches on the motherboard by the two IDE connectors, so I also downloaded a copy of the MEB motherboard manual.
.
CHECK TO SEE IF there ARE dipswitches by the IDE connectors.
If there ARE dipswitches, make sure that YOU also download a copy of the manual so that you can verify exactly what is right and not right -- I cannot see at your end what your eyes see.
Anyway, as I interpret what I see in the manual, you SHOULD be able to overclock your rig at least some; however, you do have a least some of a limiting factor in the memory that you have and also probably a limit in the CPU cooler that you have. Please verify if (1) you have dipswitches on your motherboard. If you do (2) verify that dipswitches 7-10 are as follows:
- 7: ON
- 8: off
- 9: off
- 10: off
If you DO have dipswitches in the state that I show, then there is a VERY high possibility that you can overclock your rig!
.
First!. Do NOT change any of the dipswitches except for 7-10!
second! PLEASE verify anything that I tell you hear with the manual! and DO question EVERYTHING I am telling you.
To try to do a small overclock with the FSB set to 105 MHz by setting the dipswitches as follows:
- 7: off
- 8: ON
- 9: off
- 10: off
Try botting up with the dipswitches at this setting. This should get you to a CPU speed of 420 MHz. If this succeeds, you can try a FSB of 110 by setting the dipswitches to:
- 7: off
- 8: ON
- 9: off
- 10: ON
If this works and your machine is now running at 440 MHz, it means that you've got the idea and you can potentially experiment with faster settings. Also know this: Because of the PCI bus, your machine is more likely to work with a 124 MHz FSB that it is when a 120 MHz FSB.
Good luck
!
