I recommend you sell your Gigabyte PK's and try to get some HZ's. It won't be that expensive of an upgrade. Also lap your heatsink, not your processor, but your heatsink. If you lap that alone you can squeeze a few C drops in load temps.
Honestly though, with a 9x multiplier on the 6600, you should be able to try a 375 or 350 FSB on the 9x multi. I don't know why you wouldn't be able to squeeze that out of it. DDR2 800 can run at 400 FSB at stock timings.
I got to 367 @ like 1.525 stable for a while. actully I could have probably have been stable @ 1.5v.
odd(not literally like 3, 7, etc.) FSB freqencies on my RAM jsut don't run. i can put the timings in the cieling w/ +.1 or +.2 over stock specs on the RAM and it jsut won't run right. usually won't even post. I've actulyl had the RAM @ 1100 w/ like 6-8-8-24 timings or higher w/ +.4v(should be 2.2v but w/ vdroop it was liek 2.1v) and it was stable for awhile. but this RAM is wierd. plus I would always have to boot, it'd reboot(byitself) like 4 times, i'd have to hold teh power button down for 4 secs then go into the bios, set the FSB back and then i'd be good2go @ that speed agin, wierd i know.
I've also run it @ 400x8 @ 1:1 on the ram but I can't remember exactly waht happend but it was wierd... I think i needed liek .2v extra on the FSB and the CPU needed some volts too. also the onyl program that picked the OC up right was cpu-z
