Quoting from Ste:
"But again, to show the RAM timmings you need to Press Ctrl + F1 at CMOS Screen, before entering any menu."

Not much in the real world of doing a task, such as gaming. I'd say just for benchmarking. I got mine to 3.4-3.6 for a couple of benches, then just headed back down to 3.2 for temperature reasons.

Unfortunatly the new E6600s with the newer steppings just dont clock as well thats probably all you can get out of it - give it a bit more voltage and up your VMCH and give it a go, but if its a newer stepping then that might be your tops.
