Change ur FSB to 300 in the bios....it should be very stable...if ur happy with a 300mhz oc.....


just do that in the mean time , if for some reason it doesent work , and your pc wont boot , unplug your pc from the wall for 20 seconds , then re-plug it in , will reseat your bios to defaults

This isn't my method of choice but if you decide to follow this advice then atleast make sure your memory is on the lowest divider possible beforehand.

A few things to consider...

He has an NVIDIA 780i board, so memory can be unlinked.

NVIDIA uses QDR (333 FSB x 4 = 1333 QDR)

333FSB with the Q6600 is easilly obtainable with at most 1.325 vcore. So that might make a good starting point.

ben, dont mess with the memory until after you finish with you cpu o/c. leave the memory at stock settings for now. just concentrate on the cpu for now, when you get that stable at your highest o/c, then you can go back and mess with the ram. remember, you only want to o/c one component at a time, this way your sure other components aren't interferring with the o/c.
