I think what you are referring to are cpu core (ie. venice, winchester). That is where you would see the most improvement depending on what core you had. Just curious..
Lots of boards won't give you the options you need to overclock to your hearts content.
Ram Dividers, Different Voltages(cpu, ram, chipset), Ram tweaking options (DFI gives a ton of timing options)
Another thing is being able to overclock from within Windows, whether useing a program like Ntune or a different program thats specific to your motherboard.
kia=via, sis is another option for amd northbridges.
Currently useing an ECS Nforce3-A motherboard. ECS has been notoriously bad for overclocking since it doesn't give shit for options, although on my current one I have all the options of 4 different dividers, think 5 different cpu voltages, 3 different ram voltages along with the normal ram timing tweaks. I also have limited Ntune support so I don't have to do it all in BIOS.
