I just built a quad folder on the cheap, and would like to squeeze the max out of it.
Q6600 G0 (whatever the hell G0 means, CoreTemp says I have that one)
mobo- EVGA e-7150/630i GPU mobo (save on video card)
RAM- 2GB G.Skill PC2-6400/800MHz
I have it folding it's first WU at 2.6GHz with an FSB boost and no other changes. I'd like suggestions on what to do to it tomorrow morning between WUs. At 2.6 GHz, Core Temp has all 4 cores at 42C. I'd like to crank it with no more parts to buy (at this time). It helps that it's in an unheated room. I have no idea what any of the RAM tweaks mean that I've seen here, so if you think I should do some of that, please be very specific about what I have to do.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
edit- XP Home SP2, Win SMP
edit- per the rules, I'll keep a record of the current settings here, updating as we go.

Proud to crash my machines as a Beta Tester!
