Hey there, I just got this DRR3/DDR2 Combo board [The Gigabyte EP45C-DS3] Because I wanted to be fairly future proof. Later on I find out that the board is not a great overclocker, but it is after 7 days of purchase so I can't return it, sadly, so I'll have to stick with it.
I have a G0 Stepping 65nm 2.4Ghz Intel Q6600 Quad Core Processor, which, on the contrary as you probably know is well-known to be an awesome overclocker.

And so in this difficult situation my outcry to you guys is for a few things:

Optimal/Recommended Settings [Voltages, Speeds, etc as I'm not too confident with voltage tweaking and the like] for the motherboard.

Also, what processor speed would you recommend I aim for with this board? Anything over 3.0 Ghz would be nice.

I also need new RAM to complement this, now do I go with the

4gb [2x2] DDR3 1333Mhz Kingston ValueRAM base.com: Memory - PC - DeskTop - DDR3 - Branded - Kingston ValueRAM - Memory - 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin - DDR3 - 1333 MHz - CL9 - 1.5 V - unbuffered - non-ECC # KVR1333D3N9/2G,

or the 4gb [2x2] OCZ Gold DDR2 1066Mhz OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 Gold Memory - Ebuyer

Thanks for any possible input of your expertise :thumbsup:

PS I have a sufficient cooler, so I should be able to do a high-ish oc.

PPS I haven't installed the motherboard yet as I am waiting on you're verdict on the right RAM

PPPS: If my mobo voltage is 1.5V, can I use 1.8 Ram? What tweaks do I have to make?

If I can I would like to use this ram instead of the kingston http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/1970...html?srcid=867
