Yes you should be able to do something with it.
It depends on the associated components too.

My System Specs

Hey There!
I have the exact same board in my test Computer (see sig) , although I am new to OC'ing, I have so far been able to squeeze the 2.0gHz Processor to 2.5ghz , with it being very stable.
I have yet to push it any further, time will tell.
Some good advice though rests in my original thread.

OC a 939

Being a Rookie myself, I can only off so much by way of advice, however feel free to shoot me a PM if you want a step by step of what I've done so far.

Regards,
ST
