Hello, and welcome to OCN, please fill in your system specifications HERE! as detailed as possible.

*Edit* Iv'e never owned an NForce board, so I'll let the NForce tweakers help you on this one. Your going to have to increase your VCore. try 1.4v with an FSB of 333*9 that should get you into windows @ 3GHz with no added voltage to NB or FSB

Carefull now, that person was O/Cing a E4300 Allendale Dual core, and this guy is O/Cing a Q6600 Kentsfield Quadcore..... The settings will be alot different in terms of needed voltage to the core, NB and FSB

Cool thanks for the help. Think anyone can be more specific, ie safer, and help me with the settings for a core 2 quad and not just the duo?

all but volts should be same as above.. you will find what volts you need by trial n error... higher FSB = Higher voltage needed = higher temp..
Max is 1.5

set vcore to 1.325 and leave the rest at auto for now
fsb to 1333
mem to 800
cpu ratio to 9

that will give you 3.0 ..... run Prime95 for 6-10hrs small fft test, and keep an eye on temps using coretemp

max temp for a Q6600 GO rev is 71c and B3 rev is 61c

you can find out which yours is by using cpu-z

When I had that board, it got my E6600 stuck at 2.7 ghz. I believe you need to push the volts up a little more. Try to go to 300 fsb right away.
