Read Here First

Get some After market cooling

Nice Ram timings. I would Leave the Ram where it is.

I would Advise you to buy Some Aftermarket cooling before changing the FSB/Multiplier

Choose one int the top 8 And start saving

Those clocks sound like a good idea, cant really suggest anything else

Good Luck Man :D

To hit 3.0 with that Q6600 you will not require an aftermarket CPU cooler. If i were you, i would just raise the FSB to 333, turn off C1E & Speedstep in the BIOS, lower the RAM frequency to 667 and leave the Vcore at default.

If the overclock does not hold (which it should), i would just raise the Vcore in small increments until it holds.
