Overlock DDR3 on GA-P35C-DS3r

I currently own this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-128-... with 4gb of DDR2 800 (running at 800mhz) in it, and a Q6600 (2.4ghz) OC'd at 333x9 (3.0ghz).

I have a few questions though. DDR2 800 runs at most at a FSB of 400mhz, correct?
If so, with a FSB of 333, does that mean I am running my memory at 333x2.4 to reach 800mhz?

Also, if I were to put in DDR3 1333 on my board (DDR3 1066 is the highest supported), it would downclock it to 1066 automatically. From there, with my FSB at 333mhz, could I set the memory multiplier to x4 (which is an option) to get my memory to run at DDR3 1333?

So what happened with ddr3@1333? Did it work ? should i do it ? If yes what is the ram volts ?

Not exactly. That is its rated speed. But you can run it faster or slower.

If your memory settings are on Auto, yes. I recommend running your memory at 1:1. Take your memory settings off Auto and run your System Memory Multiplier at 2.0.

Overclocking memory in a Core2 system gives little benefit.

If I understand your question, yes.

But why put any more money into a nearly dead platform? Besides, the capabilities of DDR3 memory are pretty much wasted in a Core2 system.
