Drop the memory to a high divider first so it runs slow then keep feeding the processor unitl it is stable. Remember to drop the HTT to 4x. Then do the same for the ram (using the 7 divider). I highly reccomend picking up an Arctic Freezer 64 pro.
After that it's pretty much smooth sailing. SLI the 8800's, then overclock those individually. After you find good stable clocks, use nvflash to get your BIOSes off the cards, edit them to those clocks, and flash them so you don't have to worry about it.
