Notice the difference in the CPU & RAM frequencies - 266MHz & 333MHz. For optimal performance, they should both run at the same speed. So what you should do is increase the CPU frequency to 333MHz to match the RAM. That will put the CPU clock speed at 3.33GHz.

Here's your board manual: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileLis...

Go to page 39. The M.I.T. menu in the BIOS is where you do the overclocking.

Just a tip - set the CPU voltage manually to default value, because the board might automatically raise it because of the higher frequency.

If you do set the frequency to 333 MHz, perhaps you should lower the CPU multiplier a notch. (9x333 would result in 3GHz - a good place to start). Also be sure to modify the RAM multiplier to have 1:1 CPU:DRAM freq. ratio.

Memory multiplier would need to be 2.0
Fix PCIe freq to 100
Disable C1 State
Disable Speed Step (optional but recommended)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
