I assume your using stock cooling? That could very well become your limit factor, heat.

Get CoreTemp
It will give you the temps for each core. 60C is normally used as the maximum value while running the CPU under 100% using Orthos or dual Prime95 etc.

If your temps seem fine, then you can try increasing the voltage a bit on the CPU (vCore).

BTW, is your memory DDR2-800 or only DDR2-667?

EDIT: It appears you have the Intel SpeedStep/Enhance C1E stuff enabled. That is reducing your multiplier down to x6 as there's no load. You probably want to go into the BIOS and disable that if your going to OC.

You'll be at 2250mhz when you disable speedstep in BIOS.

Please list out your BIOS settings.

thought these could go 3.2 on stock air alway have case sides off

I don't know. I definitely wouldn't be overclocking on the stock Intel heatsink. Temps were just too high for me.

You should run the RAM at 800MHz (400) instead of 333, but that's your choice. Also I think the timings could be lower as well, depending if its Revision 1 or Revision 2.

Post your temps at idle and at load. We'll go from there.

Take a digital camera pics of the Overclocking area settings of your BIOS and post them.

I'm also a new OC'er and I had to read through about a dozen guides until I got all the different terms to make sense as a "big picture". I searched for guides that used a motherboard as close to mine as possible and they proved the most help for me :)

rev 2 how do i tell ram speed ?
