QX6700 is a waste if it's not overclocked. The X is begging for it. Holler if you wanna overclock.

Burn iso to floppy/cd/dvd & reboot:

Press CTRL-ALT-DEL in bios. Try 8 x 400 = 3.2ghz. Leave all voltages on AUTO. Save & exit. If memtest passes 1 test, reboot & try 8 x 450, etc. You'll need good cpu cooling. Even though you ram can do 1066mhz, your mobo may not. You can try 7 x 500 = 3.5ghz.

Leave ram at 5-5-5-15@2T@2.1v. Default is 1.8v. So +0.3v.

It's fine at your speed.

I think the vcore & vfsb & vmch should be a bit higher for my settings.
