Version 1.6.1 is up. Totally re-wrote the section on memory which now includes a discussion on both DDR2/DDR3 and formulas you can use to calculate max supported FSB of a given module based on it's DDRX-Y and PCX-Y designations. Also re-ordered the first part of the guide.

@bloodgaze - thanks for the kind words. Judging by your system specs, you should be putting this info into practice! I 9x333 should be no problem for your setup. Depending on the chip, I wouldn't be afraid to push 3.6 GHz either.

What about PLL voltage? My Maximus is set to "auto" but the actual is hovering around 1.8....should i manually override to a lower value?
