  1. If you have a Q6600 G0 then you should be able to hit 3GHz on the stock voltage which is normally 1.325 by just upping the FSB to 333MHz from 266MHz.
  2. ye that's what I did last time and it blew up although im pretty sure the psu I had was the cause of it
  3. what about the ram I have do u think ill be able to oc tht
