Recent convert to the OC religion.

Here's my spec:

EVGA nForce 680
BFG 8800GTX
Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 PC2-8500C5 (5-5-5-15)
Enermax Galaxy 850W (plan on a second 8800 GTX at some point - SLI)
Antec 900 case
C2D E6600
Zalman CNPS9500-AT

Should I fit the memory fan?

I have read the beginners guide in the sticky, but I'm looking for advice on steps to overclock, and what to avoid.

Have I picked good components to take me to around 3.4MHz on the 6600 (which is my target)?

What are the settings for the FSB, Multiplier and RAM for the above to get 3.4?

Thanks a lot!

Theres no guarantee with overclocking but you should get between 3.3.3-8 I imagine. Those are good components, only possibly improvement could have been the case or cooler, but the motherboard, processor and RAM you've done a good job. Your cpu will be multiplier 9, Fsb your going to need around 370-420, but id start at 300, disable all the things you dont need in bios, like IDE or Raid (if you don't use it obviously). Make sure command rate of RAM is 2T, use 1.35 Vcore. I'd try the other voltages on auto first. Spread Spectrum - disable, don't touch PCI-E system clock(100). Not entirely sure what other things you need to do. Download programs Coretemp and CPU-Z too.
