i think if you want high fsb then you should just max the NB and FSB voltage and keep pushing the FSB with the 6x multiplier untill you cant get any higher.so you should get 533x6 no problem. thats 2132FSB!!!but make sure you have some 1066 ram though!

wouldnt that be utter hell on the components though with max voltage?

Voltage was a meager 1.27 and I was using Buffalo Firestix PC6400 @ 2.1 volts. Ran it that way for over a year, no issues. I didn't have to touch FSB or NB. Just CPU and Ram.

I have been running 1600mhz on my Gigabyte DS3 P965 Rev.1 for 2 years now with default NB and FSB voltage. It sais that it only supports 1066mhz too.

D:! does that mean the 750i will wipe my HDD"s if i clock my Q6600 at 1600 with a 7.5x multi (assuming mobo and cpu can do .5x multipliers :??:)??????? now im scared to buy one lol!

From what I understand, the 7xx (and the 6xx?) boards don't handle overclocking that well. They have a nasty habit of data corruption on the harddrive if you do. I think I read that they have fixed this issue, though you need a bios update. (It might have been limited to only certain motherboards/manufacturers, I don't remember all the details.)

@474545b.

After having a 680i and 780i I can tell you this. Overclocking and stability are a running joke. The corruption bug hit all manufacturers to a degree and was fixed on all boards via a BIOS update. Asus came off quite lightly on this one due to their extra tuning and cooling (overheating south bridges caused the problem). Those are just the tip of the ice burg however. The quad core related, 4 memory stick related, heat related and poor driver related problems made those boards a nightmare for me.
