    Yeah...I am prepared to up the Vcore substantially, but not until I pass the 2.4Ghz mark. Right now I am just trying to get my highest FSB. Do I still need to up the Vcore for that?

    Also...I meant to put this in my last post.

    Vcore (bios) = 1.325
    Vdrop (OS idle) = 1.296
    Vdroop (OS load) = 1.248

    From what I have read there is not much success in the way of a pencil mod for this board, but I would be willing to hardmod the board if it would help.
    CPU: Q6600 G0 (VID=1.325)
    HS: T.R.U.E. w/ 120mm pushing
    MOBO: GA-EP45-DS3R v.1.0 (Bios = f11c)
    RAM: 4GB (2x2GB) A-Data Vitesta 800+ (SPD 4-4-4-12: Actual Timings TBD)
    VIDEO: VisionTek X1600XT 512MB Silent
    PSU: Corsair CMPSU-400CX (400W)
    HDD: 2x WD 640GB AAKS (Raid 0)
    CASE: Antec 300
    OS: Windows 7 (7600 Build)

    Prime95 (40hour) Proven Stable OC: 3.0GHz (333x9) 5-5-5-15 @ 1000MHz 2.2v

    Yeah you need to up the voltage. Take a look at my settings. Seeing that we have the same mobo & cpu (same vid), you may be able to use the same settings. The only difference is your ram settings. The core voltage in the pics says 1.525v, but I was able to get it down to 1.51875v.

    Go Here.
