With the 650i chipset, just set the ram to unlinked and 800, That way you can OC the CPU without worrying about the ram beung OCed out oof specs.

As for the OC, you can probably keep the northbridge on default oltage, but you might need 1.3v when you start going past 1333 QDR (333 FSB). 1.4v should be good at around 1600 QDR.

As for the CPU, try upping the vcore maybe 1 or 2 notches at a 3.0GHz OC. the max you can run on the CPU is 1.5v, but that generates a lot of heat. So your cooling plays a vital role when OCing. Run CoreTemp to see what the VID is (default stock voltage for the CPU). That will give you a good basis to work with.
