4GB (2x2Gb) 1600Mhz 8-8-8-24

I comes with a nice aluminium heat sink.

BTW my memory is 1600 Mhz but it runs at 1333. Not sure why...
Oh I see, I thought you already received the new cooler since it's in your sig.

You can change the memory speed by changing the memory multiplier in the bios. Remember that when you raise the FSB the memory speed will also go up, so may have to lower the memory multiplier later.

Try this:
9 x 400 (3.6Ghz)
Multiplier 3.33 (puts memory at 1333 again)
CPU vcore 1.5v
NB / MCH voltage 1.3v

Not sure what NB is sorry...

Also, knowing that my memory is 1600Mhz and not 1333 as I initially thought, what would the multiplier be?

CPU scaling with 2x 5870s. 2x 5870s are stronger than 2x 6850s, but it should give you an idea.

NB = North Bridge of course...

I've opened a new thread for the OC part of the process:
