Bios settings for a Quad core Q6600

Hi people

Wonder if you can advise me please as I've just purchased a Q6600

My fsb for my current processor is 800mhz and of course the Q6600 is 1066. At the moment I have PC6400 800mhz. Do I leave all bios settings at 800mhz or should I change processor & fsb settings to 1066mhz or will it cause instability with the memory at 800mhz?

It will depend on your motherboard. Most are auto detect for cpu and memory.

It should run the cpu @ 1066 and the memory @ 800.

Post back the details of the motherboard if you want it to be checked.
