Although technically it might be considered asking too much for advanced overclocking settings on something like an XPC, it would be nice to have the options for those who are daring enough to try to squeeze out every ounce of power from their CPU's.

It's also important for an SFF system to have good control over fan speed...

Let's find out what kind of tweaking options you get:

All things considered, you get a few tweaking options. The important memory timings are there, including the important 1T setting. HT speed can be set from 200-250 MHz, in 1 MHz increments. There is no PCI or PCI-E bus lock however.

I like that the multiplier shows the relative clock speed when being changed, however we'd like to see 0.5x mutliplier increments. Memory can be set up to 2.9V, which is about as high as you'd want to go without some serious ram.

The "health" page presents no shutdown or warning temperature values. However, fan speed control is highly configurable:

It's no uGuru, but it's nice to be able to choose from various selections, depending on your usage.
