Just ordered some stuff for a new build off newegg and as I have always been an AMD fanboy i was wondering if some experienced intel OCers can look at what I got and tell me how it should OC

Ok, first i'll just say that the CPU is a Q9550, think ppl are aware of the specs

here's the board:

here's a list of the BIOS options available

I also have some gskill DDR2-800 ram from my old build that i was going to use, but i was wondering if i should buy some new faster ram to accomodate the overclocking i plan on doing? thanks

i'm not into extreme overclocking, i just like pushing components a bit further than stock, but not to where there's too much extra voltage needed. unfortunately it has to be microatx to fit in the case i'm getting, which i need for portability sake.

i'm not expecting to hit 4ghz or anything, just want to make sure i can get in the mid-3ghz range

and so far ppl that have reviewed the board say it's a decent overclocker, but most of those reviews have been by owners of dual cores, just want to make sure there isnt anything in particular that this cpu type wont like about this board or vice versa
