hi guys,
just got a q6600 and asus p5n-d mobo and was wondering how to overclock my chip to 3gig at least, i have tried various ways reccomended by places but to no avail just seems to loaad past my bios and crash.
has any 1 got any ideas?
i got the latest bios from asus the 0801.
also noticed my ram according to cpu-z is running at 400mhz even though in bios its set to run at 800mhz and all the ram i got in my pc is crucail ballistix pc8500 cl5 so capable of goin to 1066mhz?

hope some1 can shine some light on this cheers
