Albatron PX915G Pro: official overclocking acknowledgement

Albatron officially informed that PX915G Pro motherboard for Intel Pentium 4 (Prescott) Socket 775 processors with 533/800 MHz FSB continues "overclocking" traditions and enables to overcome 800 MHz FSB barrier of 915G (NB Voltage in BIOS). Pity, but no specific maximal FSB was provided in the press release. But we´ll obtain this value during tests, as this board is already in our lab.
