372 x 9 (3.347GHz)
CPU 1.4v
PLL 1.6v
FSB Term 1.4v
NB 1.55v
SB 1.05v

DRAM (PC26400)
892MHz
5:6 ratio
tCL 5
tRCD 5
tRP 5
tRAS 5
tRRD 3
tRFC 50
tWR 6
tWTR 3
tRTP 3

CPU-z reports core voltage as 1.368v idle, 1.328v load
35C idle, 59C load

Any suggestions? I'll post back test results tomorrow.
Any recommendations as to:
Load Line Calibration
Static Read Control

I'm jealous of your ram tongue.gif
Anyways, I attached my bios settings which have my q6600 stable at 401*9. The Asus p5q series supports easily up to 450fsb (after that it starts to flake). Something to consider if you have nice ram and your cpu is more stable using the 8x multiplier. As far as voltage goes, I'd increase it to at least 1.425 vcore for 3.6ghz. See if its stable there then lower it by .125 until you find the sweet spot. Every processor has one thumb.gif. Over the weekend I was planning on lapping my zalman heatsink and q6600 for even better temps. I max out around 63 Celsius under heavy load for 1hr plus. So while more vcore = higher temps, the q6600 loves abuse and anything under 1.45vcore should be pretty safe. I know intel has a 1.5 max vcore on it, I'm guessing that was for those lousy b3 chips though. The g0 stepping is much superior.
Without further delay, my bios pix.

Gotta go work, good luck with your OC dudes.

So I disabled transaction booster, DRAM static read control, and Vanderpool tech. (virtualization as I don't currently use i)
Enabled Load Line Calibration-
What are these 'relay levels' I see when I disabled Transaction booster?

So the below settings were stable for 12 hours and 18 minutes:
372 x 9 (3.347GHz)
CPU 1.4v
PLL 1.6v
FSB Term 1.4v
NB 1.55v
SB 1.05v

Also I was incorrect about my RAM, I actually have GSkill DDR2-1000 (not 800). It's been a long time since I thought about OCing...

So I increased to the following settings, just finished testing as stable:

DRAM (PC28000)
991MHz
3:4 ratio
tCL 5
tRCD 5
tRP 5
tRAS 15
tRRD 3
tRFC 50
tWR 6
tWTR 3
tRTP 3

Any suggestions on the next step? Is there a reason my RAM is under-clocked at this divider? (the next one is unstable at this bus speed)
