You should be able to get up around 4.5 GHz I would think or close depends on the CPU really. Some need more voltage than others. Have a read through the Link in my sig for FX overclocking

This particular motherboard has a fair amount of Vdroop, so be ready for than when you start overclocking. The chipset on the board also does not like it if you attempt to push past 5Ghz, Also is a bit buggy sometimes when tampering with RAM timings.

One final note, any bugs or issues you experience with this board whilst overclocking are there for good. AsRock has not updated the BIOS on this board since release nor do they plan too.
