As a newbie to all this, the biggiest thing I learned that's not clearly explained in noob speak, is that oc'ing the ram seems to be the hardest part to get stable. Mine is stable now after I made sure to put it 1:1 (which is not oc'd at all @ 400x9) with the FSB, made sure I had the correct voltage for my ram (2.1v for OCZ SLI ram), and set my timings loose enough to stay stable (5-5-5-18 to start with, later tightened it down to 5-4-4-12).

As for 3dmark06 score, my Q6600 at (400x9) 1.4225v, 4gb ram, and 9800GTX oc'd to 830, 2052, 1240 gave me a score of 15,909. Mighty decent I think for a non SLI system.
