    Is overclocking depending on Mainboard?

    Some people can overclock their CPU up to 4.0GHz+ but mine is only 3.5Ghz. I wonder if my Mainboard is not good at overclocking.

    in the case of your e7500 it's the CPU the limiting factor. CPU are not born the same, peoples try quite few CPU of the same model before find a golden one that OC better. OC need a lot of experience too. Honestly you will have more chance to find answer on a OC dedicated forum.
