ASRock ALiveNF7G-HDReady

"While ASRock motherboards aren't designed for overclocking and very few of their motherboards can overclock up to enthusiast standards, we had attempted to overclock the system with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+. Unfotunately, any hopes of obtaining a nice overclock using the ALiveNF7G-HDready were quickly diminished. With our hardware and after tweaking the BIOS, the system would fail to POST when pushing the CPU frequency past 220MHz. Aside from the lackluster overclocking abilities, this motherboard does work out quite well with Linux and Solaris."
