First things first.......

Start putting everything together and fire it up.

After the installation of everything you have to do, to get the system running, try downloading the 0606 BIOS and flash.

Then you'd be able to start pushing the system to the stock HSF limits which wouldnt' be as high as a 3rd party HSF.

Try to stay under 1.5V core, say a 5% increase first above 400mhz and go from there. RAM should be in the 2.1v to 2.3v depending on the ratio you decide to play with.

Write RAM freq. down to remember which setting is which.

BIOS, ASUS PC Probe II V1.00.43 here: LINK.

Chipset v, RAID F6 disk, Matrix Storage Manager Installation Utility v here: LINK.

For the rest of your Qs here:

Read up and learn the art of overclocking, once done it's easy to fallow, if confused, write things down, log-in everything that work or didn't work just in case you CRS. Don't panic if the system doesn't boot up after an overclocking setting, just turn power off.......keep a floppy with the current BIOS (or the a copy from the ones in the cd) just in case they get corrupted. It happened twice to me and was able to recover from such mishappening.
