Graphics card: SAPPHIRE HD 4850

Overclocking the E4600 to 3.0GHz is relatively easy and all we were honestly required to do was increase the FSB in the ASUS P5K-E Deluxe BIOS to 250MHz. Leaving the memory multiplier as it was, this resulted in a memory frequency of 750MHz which the G.Skill memory was easily able to handle given that it is designed to work at 800MHz. When operating at 3.0GHz the E4600 demonstrated similar performance to the Core 2 Duo E6850 processor

Should be fairly simple. Lower the RAM speed to DDR2-400, then raise the CPU frequency to 250MHz. The CPU will then run at 3.0GHz & the RAM should be in sync.

Your going to need better cooling to get a better overclock. You will need to raise the voltage also, that would also require better cooling. To increase your memory speed you may also have to change the multilier to 11x or even 10x.
