After over 20 hours of ORTHOS and 3D Demos, I am confident in this 2.7Ghz (13%) overclocked configuration.

This motherboard's Voltages are all kinds of wacky. Undervolting the CPU, Overvolting the Memory, Undervolting the Northbridge.

CPU Temperature Peak:
148 Degrees F.

ASUS P5N-T Deluxe 780i Motherboard
Intel Q6600 G0 Quad Core CPU, Stock Cooling
Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3DF 2x1GB DDR2-800 CAS3 Memory
EVGA 8800GT Superclocked (650/1900) Video Card
Western Digital 750GB RE2 Hard Drive
Enermax Infiniti 650W EPS12V Power Supply

BIOS Settings:
Version 0502
AI Tuning: Manual
Legacy USB Support: Disabled
nVidia Ex: Enabled
SLI-Ready Memory: Expert
Clocks: Linked, Sync Mode, 1200 FSB (600 Memory)
Memory Timings: Command Rate: 2T, Everything else Auto
- Vcore: 1.3V
- CPU VTT: Auto
- Memory: 2.29V
- NB Bro4: 1.3V
- 1.2V HT: 1.24V
- NB Chip: 1.4V *** Key One for Me ***
- SB Chip: Auto

Everest Reported Final Memory Timings:

Memory Timings 3-4-3-7 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS)
Command Rate (CR) 2T

Everest Reported FSB/Memory Properties:

Front Side Bus Properties
Bus Type Intel AGTL+
Bus Width 64-bit
Real Clock 300 MHz (QDR)
Effective Clock 1200 MHz
Bandwidth 9600 MB/s

Memory Bus Properties
Bus Type Dual DDR2 SDRAM
Bus Width 128-bit
DRAM:FSB Ratio 1:1
Real Clock 300 MHz (DDR)
Effective Clock 600 MHz
Bandwidth 9600 MB/s

Running Team Fortress 2 at MAXIMUM settings, 16xAA, 16xAnsio, 1680x1050 at 60-90 FPS!

Hope that helps everybody!! I will eventually go to a Tuniq Tower cooling solution and see how far I can push this. The end result for me was the drastic undervolting of the NB Chip that was occuring. 1.4V and works like a dream.

Good Luck All
