If you look on the side of the box your processor came in with the bar codes, it should be towards the bottom/center of the label, to the right of "FPO/BATCH #:" Mine is L647G431.
Your motherboard, I believe, is similar to mine. When it comes to overclocking, I would set the multi down to 8x for now, and try bringing up the FSB to 400 (or 1600 - probably what it shows in your BIOS, being 400x4, because Intel runs at a Quad Data Rate or QDR) slowly
, maybe start at 370 (or 1480) - which is 2960MHz (around what you're at right now), with VCORE at or around 1.35. Increase the total FSB by 20-30 or so until you hit 1600 (which will then be 400x8 for your mobos FSB), which is 3200MHz .... and test for stability with OCCT or Orthos each time. Your motherboard should be able to handle 400FSB (1600FSB total) no problem, and 3.2GHz isn't unreasonable for the e6600 (it's what I'm currently running at). And your RAM should handle that at 1:1 no problem either - on my motherboard it's called "sync mode". If you are unstable, up the Vcore a little
... but make sure it doesn't go past 1.55 or temps don't go over 60C at load.
I hope this makes sense... sorry if it's a little jumbled.
