ahh fair enough, such as voltage and what not, but for a q6600 to reach 3.5-3.6 the best ratio would be 500x7 with my ram? is this the only way to have my ram run at its potential or even overclock it?

what i dont understand is why does my motherboard support such high ram frequences yet has an fsb wall of 1600
