G0 Stepping Q6600 on MSI P7N motherboard. I have read thru all the guides, when I raise the fsb from 1066 (stock) to 1333 and save, the system never boots back up. If I move the fsb to any number, it fails to boot back up.

system is as follows

Q6600 G0 Stepping
OCZ Vendetta 2 Triple Heatpipe CPU Heatsink
MSI P7N Platinum
OCZ Gold XTC PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800
OCZ GameXStream 600W ATX12V 24PIN SLI Ready Active PFC ATX Power Supply
EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3
Antec 900 case

I know Tom's Hardware ran this motherboard/cpu and overclocked it in the $2000 computer article, but I cant find any of their bios settings.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am only really interested in getting the cpu to 3.0ghz

How much volts are you adding to try and get 1333fsb? I have the same board and cpu and have found no difficulties in getting 3.4Ghz. If your still finding if impossible by adding on a little bit to the voltage, just give me a shout.
