after perusing over many of the threads we have about, it kinda dawned on me that we don't have a lot of information specific to Intel quad core OCing and dealing with some of the differences involved with putting a quad under an iron fist . . .

I thought, seeing as how there's a wealth of knowledge amoungst many of the users here, how about we all collaborate on a "Intel Quad Core Overclocking" thread to be stickied?

It'd be nice to see a lot of the information we have scattered about rolled into one thread, and also have some light shed on some of the more common BIOS options on newer quad supported motherboards (i.e. CPU reference or GTL voltage settings, clock overcharging settings, CPU PLL settings, etc.).

What do y'all think?
