I'm a new overclocker. but for this chip just make sure you keep the V Core under 1.36v They can overclock like crazy with the right motherboard. i think mine will push to near 3.5 but you can take them right up 4.0ghz.

P.S do all your overclocking from bios

This post right here has a couple useful links to learn how to o/c. Also, 3dmark always lags on the cpu test. I get like 2fps tops on it with a Q6600 at 3.6ghz. Since you have never o/c'ed just take your time and go in small steps to see how things react when you up the FSB and you will get the idea of how much voltage you need to add. I know you said you don't want to, but you are pretty safe unless you pass the recommended max voltage.

Hi bro if you go in to Bios remeber to set the memory and fsb to unlinked then you beable to reach good clock set your FSB or QDR to 1333mhz but make sure you have an after market such as a TRUE or Zalman or Asus. you should easily reach 3.33ghz like me I'm now going to run a 3Dmark06 test

I'm pretty sure its F8a, when I got my board that was the latest one out and I just flashed it to that. Never really had a problem with it so I never looked further into it.

Have you looked at the DS3L thread. The first page has some basic info about the board in regards to the settings that you should turn off in order to o/c and to prevent speed step from messing with you.

I would set the memory 1:1 or 2.0 in the bios, possibly relax the memory timings by pushing ctrl + F1 in the main bios screen, then you should have settings for it once you enter M.I.T. screen.

If this is your BIOS try changing CPU host clock control. Change it to enable,manual, or whatever the option is.
