Abit AB9 Pro WiFi M/B settings for OC'ing?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hi..... my question....
During the last couple of days I have just built myself a new Intel Core 2 Duo
based pc. I understand the clock multiplier on Intel chips cannot be changed
(even if the
bios allows it) mine is set to 9.

Stock speed was 9 x 272 giving a cpu speed of 2400 (2.4Ghz)

Previously I have already changed the speed to 9 x 300 = 2700 (2.7Ghz) and to 9
x 320
= 2900 (2.9Ghz) and tested using CPU Stress Tester program and temps  were
out at 51 degress C.

However, I have now tidied up the internal cables and added one extra case fan
temps now do not exceed  44 degrees C after sustained 100% cpu loads.

Obviously I can keep increasing the FSB speed, but I am worried about the effect
increased bus speeds on other PC components, specifically the ram. Do I need to
the DRAM settings at all?

If anyone else is using this board I would be interested to know what settings
you are
using. (Is there an Abit users forum or newsgroup?)

FYI: The PC spec is as follows:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 cpu (4Mb cache)
Arctic Cooling Pro 7 fan and heatsink (also used arctic silver thermal
Abit AB9 Pro (WiFi) M/B
2 x Gb crucial Ballistix DDR2 ram ( 2 x 1Gb chips running in dual
channel mode) rated at 800Mhz
Nvidia 8800GTS graphics card (320Mb)
Arctic 600w (modular) PSU
Hitachi Deskstar 320Gb SATA H/D
LG 19" TFT (widescreen) monitor
Sony 1.44Mb FDD
