FSB is where the speed is, plus you should try to take full advantage of your RAM. I would shoot for 3.2GHz (8 x 400MHz) at 1600MHz FSB with the RAM unlinked at 800MHz. The memory settings should be configured as per the RAM manufacturer's specs, do NOT use AUTO settings. Also, do NOT use AI Overclocking...configure all the settings manually. Disable SpeedStep & Spread Spectrum, lock the PCIe at 100MHz. Voltage settings will probably have to be tinkered with as well. It's all trial & error.
