If you want a great overview:




If you want to do a mild OC (to a 2.66Ghz) then simply try:


Updating your bios to the P30.

Go to Advanced Chipset Features then FSB & Memory Config and change:


FSB - Memory Clock Mode: Linked

FSB (QDR), MHZ: 1185


I did this OC with memory that is slower than yours but if gave me a stable CPU and memory overclock.
