    if you're loking to do some heavy duty overclocking, said cpu is a poor choice. it has locked multipliers, and it generates a lot of heat. if you choose the lga775 platform, i reccomend you get yourself a capable cpu cooler.

    as for the board...

    i believe there was an article in the motherboards section of tom's hardware guide (www.tomshardware.com) about a particular asus model that unlocked the fixed multiplier on said p4, thus making real overclocking possible.

    so i was thinking of going to water cooling with the abit board but what do you think i could reach for a speed?

    ahh, with better than stock air cooling, you should be able to overclock the fsb by 12.5% (a common tick-mark in the overclocking scale). ther eare no gurantees in overclocking, and there may be other limitations holding you back.
