It will OC. I dont see a AGP/PCI lock so, its hard to say how far it can go. If it doesnt have AGP/PCI lock in bios, you might want to be carefull. That would mean that it will overclock everything then. ( hdds, video card, pci cards, etc... )

I dont know if it works on that board, but some will open more advanced features by pressing "CTRL+F1" in the main BIOS screen. You might find some stuff in there. Hope this helps some. Good luck.

Edit: after downloading the manual, it looks like it has adjustable AGP/PCI buses. If you can set these to 66/33 you should be ok. I would just worry about memory bus then. That will depend on the memory you have.
