So i did my first OC.. Suggestions?

Hey guy so after researching all of the day for overclocking advice, i arrived to going to 3.6GHz fr my CPU is advised. For some background.. here's my current setup:

E8400 C2D (3GHz stock) Overclocked to 3.6GHz with H50 water cooler
OCZ Reaper RAM (5-5-5-15) PC3-5300 (333MHz)
750W Corsair PSU
GTX460 1Gb
EVGA 750i FTW Motherboard

Here are the temps and general telemetry when the computer is under the Intel Burn Test:

  1. Your running your ram out of spec, have you tested your ram at that speed?

    The thing is that I'm not sure what speed i should be running the RAM at considering my current CPU speed.

    This is the frequency its running at:

    Should i try running with lower voltages in the CPU core or FSB? or on the nForce SPP?
  5. Disregard my last post I'm a bit tired tonight,lol.

    Your ram is running withing specs at 666mhz.

    You can always test and try to run lower voltage, can't hurt.
