Edit:
The Gigabyte DS3 only supports DDR2 533 memory and above, I don't know where you heard that DDR2 400 is supported.
"1. Supports DDR2 800/667/533 memory"
But at 2.0 its at a 1:1 divider.... which is where you'll want to be if you're overclocking your E6300/6400 and your DS3 board to 3.2ghz (800mhz 4-4-4-12 timings). Am I wrong? But thats not a problem whatsoever.

Also, how is the f6 bios? Better than f4?

Yes but he has G.SKILL 2x1024 DDR2-667, which is only rated for 333FSB in 1:1 ratio, so in the end the RAM will eventually be a limiting factor.

Edit:
I don't know if F6 better than F4, but it's stable.

Yes I know, but once he starts overclocking his DDR2 667 won't be able to handle the high FSB frequencies (400FSB+) which the motherboard (DS3) and CPU (E6400) can.

Basically I'm saying it would be a better choice to purchase some quality DDR2 800 sticks, but since he already has the DDR2 667 I'm guessing purchasing new RAM is out of the question.

Edit:
I never said DDR2 800 isn't supported on the DS3, btw. I said DDR2 533(rated to handle 266FSB 1:1 '2.00X')/667(rated to handle 333FSB 1:1 '2.00X')/800(rated to handle 400FSB 1:1 '2.00X')/(unofficially1066, rated to handle 533FSB 1:1 '2.00X') are supported, and I did say DDR2 400 (1:1 200FSB) is NOT supported.

hence why the DS3 doesn't support DDR2 400...

The plan is I will try this RAM and see how far it will go. If it does 400 1:1 then I might hang on to it for awhile. If the ram holds me back, I'll be purchasing some DDR2-800 shortly after. I've been looking at the OCZ XTC Platinum 2GB DDR2-800 with 4-5-4-15 timings. My friend has it with the DS3 and 6400, just like me.

Thing is with overclockin RAM that much is that its hard to tell if it is stable and if it is running too hot.
