    All the info I need, and everything looks good

    If you want you can try, if you wish try CPU Ratio 10.
    Expected GFlops 44.4+, increment vcore on/two steps at a time if GFlops too low, but you shouldn't need more then 1.4v.
    Run few hours Prime95 blend torture and save a 3.33GH BIOS profile, then we can see what to do next. I would try to see if the memory can work with SMM 3.00A. then increase FSB for higher CPU frequency.

    BTW while running IBT, make sure no other applications are running and the computer at complete idle(let it idle for 5 minutes after boot). Switching to Windows 7 Basic theme to disable Aero may help also, save you custom theme before you do.

    Not sure if you need to see this but the more info the better...

    Thanks so much again. After reading what you have told me to do and playing around all day yesterday. Overclocking is making a lot more sense in some area's.
    I read a beginners guide and the changing of the NB Vcore, SB Vcore, and ICH Chipset, make no sense to me yet. Or loosening of the timing on the ram...

    So far things are looking good. Not sure what I can do to speed up my RAM anymore, maybe you have an idea on that.

    CPU Voltage still normal at 3.2 GHz?

    I thing not you can back FSB to 333 ant try CPU Ratio 10 (with SMM either 3.20B or 3.00A) see how 3.33GHz go, and then by 5MHz GSB increments up to 356 if temperatures and allows it.
    Max VID range for this CPU is 1.5v(super safe) and absolute max Vcore 1.55v, for nw do not exceed 1.5v even if temps would still allow it, which I doubt.
    Running IBT for short period at 80c should be OK,, but if you prefer 75c or lower it's OK.
    Most of these CPUs(Q6600) stall at 3.4-3.5GHz, beyond that temps are too hight (for air cooling) and higher voltage is needed.

    Don't worry about RAM performance, I think they are fine for this FSB, they can improved increasing FSB, but for every day use there is very little difference, unlike CPU frequency that improve performance almost 1:1, depends what you do.
    Depending on your final CPU OC we will decide if the can be OCed a little.
    The same OC as you have it now may be achived using 400MHz FSB with CPU Ratio 8, wihth SMM 2.66D and likly 1-2 higher Static tRead valu, rhis will increase memory performance dramatically.
    We can go from there but I rater finding CPU max OC at lower FSB then try higher which will probably require other changes like increasing FSB Over Voltage and MCH Over Voltage.

    EDIT: I just went over CPU-Z report and see vcore is higher than before so it must be higher than normal or normal set it higher as result of OC.

    I totally forgot to report how I got to where I am now. I did try and set it to a 10x Multiplier, FSB @ 333 and with SMM @ 3.20B, starting with Vcore @ 1.36250V up to 1.4V and I would either blue screen, not post at the lower volts, or any higher IBT would fail. Either saying Linx64exe stopped working... Failed. Though I don't believe I tried SMM @ 3.00A since it changed the RAM so much.

    So just to be clear this is what I should try and do now:

    10x Multiplier
    FSB back to 333
    SMM @ 3.00A
    And play with the Vcore checking for the best Gflops and not failing. Once I lock in the Volts, (Max 1.5v) If the temps allow this.
    Then start to increase the FSB by 5MHz at a time up to 356?
    Of course once I find where the max my cpu and mobo can do, run Prime95 for 6 hours on Blend Mode, see if I Pass that.

    Just want to make sure I'm fallowing you correctly. =)

    Thanks again Chike, for all the help and answering my questions. I admit reading it and doing, I can see how, when you do one thing you need to change something else until you get a good balance. Specially the higher FSB to vcore ratio.

    Once I get this clarified from you. I'll be back at it to report back.

    Yes, and set FSB Over Voltage +0.1 (just in case)
    If it still does not work, try 320 x 10, +0.1 FSB Over Voltage, the vcore as you are now and increase 5MHz MHz each time and vcore as needed..
    Well I hope your CPU can do 3.4GH at least but probably not 3.6, 356 is just not to exceed 1066 of the memory, you will probably end with less than this.

    I just ran a memory benchmark at 3GHz
    Read and latency are the same.
    Your write (and as a result also copy) is slower, but us mortals don't know ways to improve it. I've seen that before with P45 boards too so it might depend more on the ram.

    Chike,

    Here is the fastest I could get after playing with yesterday. You were right 3.40GHz was my max.

    All setting the same except for the fallowing:

    10x340(3.40GHz) SMM @ 3.00A, 1.43750V, FSB Over voltage + 0.5 (lowest my Bios would go to the +0.1 you asked for) RAM is running at 1020.

    Attached is the MaxxMem test. If you need the cupz file I can add that below, since you can only attach one file per post.

    So far I am pretty happy with where I am at. Not sure if I can improve on anything else but the max of the CPU on AIR is definitely 3.40Ghz.

    Thanks so much again. You have taken a lot of time helping me out. That does mean something to me, as you were the only one to reply to the post. I hope even after all this we can keep in touch.

    You mean +0.05 FSB Over Voltage? Because I know for sure this bord has +0.05 increments (I read the manual), 0.5 is way too high.

    Everything elase looks good to me, Save a BIOS profile, and maybe you wish to try 425MHz FSB With CPU Ratio 8. SMM 2.40B, For this you may need up to +0.2 FSB Over Voltage, up to +0.15, and a click or 2 higher Stattic tRead Value.
    This will give the same CPU and memory OC, but memort performance will be greater.
    It depends if it is possible to use SMM 2.30 at that FSB, so try forst with CPU Ratio 7 or 6 and after you get it running change it to 8.

    We're here to help, other did not reply as they probably forgot how to OC this old technology but I am stuck at the C2x era.

    LOLz Total typo as I was doing everything. Yes it is FSB Over Voltage @ +0.05. I have had a bad cold over the weekend so I just stayed home and worked on OCing. I'll try out the suggestions above and see where I land, and report back what I get. Might be a few days, since it is my Birthday tomorrow, and depending on how I feel. Obviously I seem to can't remember to put a 0 in lol.

    Hope you have a good rest of your week and will let you know soon.
