I can't even get much over 300FSB on this board with a Kentsfield, and from what I've seen around the net, that's about par for the course... I'm very disappointed.
That's a given.
Intel and ATi(now AMD) chipsets are the better overclockers. nVIDIA's Intel nForce series and the newer 680i just seem to have always been lackluster when it came to overclocking.
