This should be your first stop.
Core2 Overclocking Guide
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/259899-29-core-overcl...

Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:

It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values.

For DDR2 RAM:
Change the System Memory Multiplier from AUTO to 2.00 or the lowest possible value close to that. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in in proportion with it. At an FSB of 266 MHz, your memory clock should be at 533 MHz.

For DDR3 RAM:
Change the System Memory Multiplier from AUTO to 4.00 or the lowest possible value close to that. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in in proportion with it. At an FSB of 266 MHz, your memory clock should be at 1066 MHz.

I really like the Gigabyte Core2 motherboards. I have 6: 2 P45's, 1 P35, 2 G41M's, and a G41MT (DDR3). I am unfamiliar with the BIOS differences (if any) of the Combo board. The G41's are in office systems where the FSB limits are not a handicap.

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

Success will largely depend on which CPU you are using.
