Okay first of all, here are my system specs:

Raidmax RX-730SS (Modular)
ASUS P5KC Bios v.1203
Patriot 4GB PVS34G1333LLK
Hitachi Ultrastar 750GB 7200RPM 32MB
nVidia Geforce 460 GTX
Sound Blaster Audigy ZA
(I don't have any Cd/DVD-ROM drives hooked up)

Anyway, I have the e6850 running at ~3.62Mhz using these BIOS settings:

Jumperfree Settings

Ai Overclock Tuner : Manual
CPU Ratio Setting : 07.0

CPU Configuration

CPU Ratio Setting : 07.0

I guess my main question is that if these BIOS values look right, or if I have anything enabled/disabled that I shouldn't have. I was hoping to milk this system out of as much as I could before buying a completely new system. Thanks for anything input.

Well I'd say that look overall right...idk about the voltage for nb on that...but seems ok...although you might be reaching the limit on that system...cpu speed/voltage-wise...

Yeah, I have a small but powerful fan I bought at on the NB itself, so luckily it's not getting super insanely hot like it was before.

yeah that's a good way to make sure it doesn't...I had a motherboard that the nb would be sitting at 67C stock everything...and in my opinion that's a bit too least compared to my other boards it is...
