Default Overclocking Q.

Well I got my Tuniq, and temps are at 35 C @ 3.7 Ghz.

My problem is, the FSB won't go higher than 1660Mhz. Any higher I go, it says that the comp is starting in safe mode at stock settings.

My CPU core is 1.55
CPU FSB- 1.5V
Mem- 1.8V

RAM is clocked at 900Mhz, with timings 5-5-5-15. Originally it was DDR2-667 with timings 4-4-4-12

So any suggestions on how to push it to at least 1750Mhz?

Would that be the nForce SPP and nForce MCP on the 680i eVGA?

most likely just up them a little than see if you can go any higher, you may have just gotten a chip that dosent want to OC very far.

Sometimes there's holes in the FSB. You could try skipping 1660 and jump it to a 1680FSB and see if it boots.

Does it blend at 1660 stable? Try unlinking your memory and run a 1:1 ratio. Run a QDR 1660 Memory at 830 and run orthos for 1 hour. If you get errors were going to work down till its stable then work up from there.
