If the only variable change is vcore, and it becomes unstable, I can't think of any other settings to get it stable without raising vcore back up. I wouldn't be afraid of 1.4 vcore though.

i decided to buy 120mm and 80mm fans, use 2 80mm for intake up front, 120mm for back exaust, and the other 80mm with the case(it comes with 2) in the blowhole. All those with a fan controller and a side air duct and i should be running cool with my conroe system

Cool. I will just say, make sure you update the BIOS. The early BIOS versions that ship with the board are crap. F5 is the newest on the Gigabyte and seems solid so far. I was using F4 for a while, and it was solid as well.

Also remember, it will default your RAM to 1.8 volts, make sure to crank it up to your RAM's spec's, 2.0 I think for HZ's, but make sure.

Oh, and Ctrl+F1 opens up the advanced options in the BIOS.

Have fun

this is pretty sweet, looks like most are getting to about 1 ghz more than stock with their conroes. My goal is 3.0 with an e6300. I think i should be able to get there with stock, a ds3 and some g skill 2gb of pc6400 with 4-4-4-12 timings. Some said the Ram would overclock to ddr2 1000. and sorry about the double post guys . oh and will my ram at least let me boot if it defaults to 1.8volts?
