Why not I run a 4.0ghz oc with the 8 multi on my 6600. This board is capable of some pretty high fsb.
Read these links for some info on the gtl ref voltage percentagesLInk 1Link2
Now Roxtor you have to remember that each chip is going to be different. You may have to raise your vcore more to get 3.8 ghz it all depends.
Settings set vcore to 1.55 (optional depedning on temps and preferance)
vmch (NB) 1.4v
SB 1.68-1.7v and 1.19 (theres two different settings)
ddr vdimm 2.2v
ddr ref +.2
cpu vtt 1.23v
cpu gtl ref both at 70% (this you gotta play with)
put your pci back to 100. Set your ram 1:1 for now with 5-5-5-15 just to concentrate on the cpu you can change these later, make sure all that extra cpu options are disabled. Now go to town and raise your fsb. try both the 9 multi and the 8 multi depending on what your ram can handle.
