Overclocking with Gigabyte P35C-DS3R and Intel Q6600
Overclocking successfully requires a mix of the right components, we take a closer look at the pinnacle of affordability and performance product from Gigabyte, the P35C-DS3R, testing with a Quad Core Q6600 we see how we can fly with a water cooled CPU and some spicy DDR2 memory modules.

Nicely written Keith ! Good thing you linked to Anand : the vdroop article by Kris is one of the best OC articles I've ever come across!
Did you play around with the tRD (static tRead value) setting to try and increase FSB above 445 ? You should also have a look at Kris' follow up article to the vdroop article, and see what's the impact of tRD.
Only pity in the review in my humble opinion is the fact that DDR3 was not tested at 400x8 as well, then we could have comparable results to DDR2. At 266FSB DDR3 on this board seems slightly faster.
