    Everything seems to be running okay, but i have the feeling that i can push my memory a little bit farther. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also, i noticed in cpu-z in the memory tab it says this:


    When i calculate the dram speed it only comes out to 852.48. Shouldn't this number be 1066? Am i calculating it wrong or is something wrong with my BIOS settings that i need to fix?

    That's perfectly rigt. 5:8 refers to the 333Mhz bus speed 333x5/8=533, 533x2 = 1066.

    Looks okay except the Vcore seem kinda high for 3G. Most Q6600's can run 3G at stock volts to around .02V above stock. As for the memory, you got um running at 1066 as Chike said above so no probs there. It would improve the memory performance a some if your modules can run at Static tRead Value=6
