OK, just got finished upgrading the guide to version 1.6!

• Added a detailed section to help you find the minimum stable CPU and MB vcore settings. Check it out (near the bottom of the guide entitled, “Stress Testing and Minimizing Your Vcores”)!
• Updated the CPU table
• Provided a less than $5 method you can use to shave off some NB load temps (in the thermal management section at the end of the guide).

Additional Comment:

Version 1.6.1 is up. Totally re-wrote the section on memory which now includes a discussion on both DDR2/DDR3 and formulas you can use to calculate max supported FSB of a given module based on it's DDRX-Y and PCX-Y designations. Also re-ordered the first part of the guide.

Beyond this thread.. no I dunno much about that MB. Does it even have o/c'ing options in the BIOS? Some Intel boards do not.

If you set your FSB to 334, you'll wanna run your memory @ 334x2=668. If you're running the RAM @ 840 with a 334 FSB, that is not running in 1:1 mode. It would be running is 334 to (840/2) = 334:420 = 4:5 if that makes sense.

3600MHZ overclock with 4GB ram? WTF? Normally high overclocks like that can only be obtained by 2GB confgs?? 4GB bottlenecks higher oc limit then 2GB RAM!

depends on the board actually. I've read about high o/c's with 8 gigs before. Generally, you need higher vcores to support the added RAM though.

Overclocking is getting easier with more ram recently, better ram, better m/bs.

3.6ghz is an average aim nowadays.

Id buy some memory if I were you! If your looking at a 800mhz set, get ones with 4-4-4, tighter timings will be nice.

@KT - I lapped mine. See the end of the guide for the link to the post showing how
@arct - If you did the experiment you're talking about you'll find there is a linear portion, and a non-linear portion. Each chip is different and there isn't a universal rule about FSB, vcore, etc.
