After days of reading through forums and sites, I finally decided to post my own since I was not able to find an answer for my issue.
So here is the story, I have the Gigabyte P965-DS3 3.3 board and I have a Q6600.
I am trying to get it to at least 3.2ghz or higher but I can't get anywhere close to it. Highest I was able to do is 300x9 and it only worked once. I'm reading all these success stories, people overclocking their Q6600 to 3.6ghz and I can barely hit 2.7ghz. I tried playing with the voltages but no matter what, the PC reboots, runs for a couple of seconds and then reboots again. This time the settings are set back to default.
I would really appreciate any help with this, specifically with the P965-DS3 boards. If there is anyone who has the same mobo and has a Q6600, please let me know what your settings are in the BIOS.
