P5N-E SLI & Q6600 Overclock

This card really sucks when trying to overclock with my specs, It just does not like quads. I have next to nothing for BIOS options ( I have flashed twice allready ) I am not trying to go light speed, just like to hit 3.2. I have tried all kinds of voltage settings and nothing will work over 3.0.
Maybe its all I am going to get with this mobo. any ideas?

INTEL QUAD CORE Q6600 2.4GHZ clocked @ 3.0ghz
ASUS P5N-E SLI NFORCE 650I SLI BIOS version 1002

To get started here Bow, list your settings & voltages so others have a reference of what you are doing & what needs to be changed for you to clock higher OK.
Helps if they know what you've already done and what your settings are now!

As you do this Bow, always take notes & write down your settings as you go(Stable, Not Stable) so you have them for later reference too.
This will help you & others down the road.
Stress testing Programs: (Click on program names for downloads)
OCCT 2.0.0a
ORTHOS (SP2004 Orthos Edition)
Prime95 v25.5

Monitoring Programs:
Speedfan v4.35
Core Temp v0.99.3
Real Temp v2.70


I've done this all along & it really helps a lot to visually see what you've already tried & what worked & what you have tried that didn't work.
I've got full records of all my OC settings at different speeds & settings with benchmark results of those clocks & settings as well.

Hey ccp, this is your field of expertise I believe with the P5NE & the Q6600.
Bump!
