I'm new to overclocking my specs, and I've been doing some number calculations with my system specs and I'd like to have someone clarify some speculation I've done with FSB, dividers, and such.

Specs:
Intel C2D e4600 Allendale
2GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800, Dual channel
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L

I'm aiming for a 3.0GHz or higher OC, so this is what I've come up with:

CPU FSB - 266MHz
DDR FSB - ~400MHz
Divider - 2:3
Frequency - 3.192GHz

CPU FSB - 300MHz
DDR FSB - 400MHz
Divider - 3:4
Frequency - 3.66GHz

CPU FSB - 320MHz
DDR FSB - 400MHz
Divider - 4:5
Frequency - 3.84GHz

CPU FSB - 333MHz
DDR FSB - ~400MHz
Divider - 5:6
Frequency - 3.996GHz

Would you recommend I stay at the current 12x multiplier and just increase the FSB and divider, or should I lower the multi so I can reduce the divider? Any other general suggestions?

EDIT: Changed calculations around.
