Yes, same thing. anything to the right of the decimal point is decreasing. so 0.4v is the same as 0.4000000000000000000000000v... you get the point.
Since you filled in your system specs, I'll help you get a decent starting OC:
Here are some settings you could use to get 3.2GHz with your Q6700 assuming the CPU can handle 3.2GHz at 1.35v or less (this OC is very doable with these settings). These arent difinitive, it is all based on the CPU, but these settings are solid for the board itself and should get you started.
Advanced BIOS Features
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) Disable
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) Disable
CPU EIST Function (Note) Disable
MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
CPU Host Clock Control Enabled
x CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) 320
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) 100
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) 1066 (with your FSB at 320, you can pick a higherdivider, so pick one as close to 1066)
System Voltage Control
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +0.4v (default is 1.8v)
PCI-E OverVoltage Control [Normal]
FSB OverVoltage Control [Normal] (might need +0.2 when running above 400 FSB)
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control [Normal] (This is your northbridge voltage, might need +0.2 when running above 400 FSB)
CPU Voltage Control 1.35v - 1.4v (this is your CPU's vcore, it might need less then 1.35v, or it might need a little bit more... only testing will tell)
Depending on what bios you have, you might have to press [CTRL+F1] in the main bios menu to access advanced memory timing options.
You also need to download CPU-Z
to check settings from within windows. The main CPU tab and memory tab are the important ones. Also use CoreTemp to monitor your CPU's temp at idle and load. To put a load and stress test your OC, run Prime 95. All of these programs can be found in the downloads section
Note: You can probably OC much higher, but this is a starting point for you to start from. Just test for stability at 3.2GHz and work up from there. Dont be afraid to lower the CPU's multi to obtain a higher FSB clock either!
