This should be your first stop.
Core2 Overclocking Guide

Next stop should be a guide for your particular motherboard. Google is your friend.

Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. Change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in in proportion with it. At an FSB frequency of 333 MHz (FSB clock of 1333 MHz), your memory clock should be at 667 MHz.

Download CPU-Z to check your FSB:RAM ratio. It should be a 1:1 ratio.

System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D

This setting does not appear to be accessible in the ASUS BIOS, specifically the 1366 flavors.

What is available is the DRAM Frequency, the result of the multiplier, being able to choose from:

I know the OP doesn't reference this, but as a point in general that I am trying to clear up, be consistent on....unless you know differently.

On the ASUS you choose the DRAM frequency and that sets the multiplier, so it is sort of backwards?

By the way, loyaknow....who makes the PSU? and the HSF?

You got a nice GPU in there and PSU if it is a good moves, those are keepers if you upgrade.
