Glad to here you got it running!
BTW I think you meant 8 (Multi) X 425 (FSB) = 3.4Ghz or 1700 (QDR) / 4 = 425 (FSB)
Hopefully everything works out good. If it does error go back into the bios and take your Vcore up another notch as long as your temps are not to high. Watch the temps every 10 minutes or so. I find actual stress testing to produce load temps around 8-13C over heavy gaming.
If your Q6600 is a G0 Stepping your temp threshold is 71C.
I'd only be concerned if it exceeds 70C during the tests. 70C in the actual stress test will likely yield 55-60C max temps in any actual game or productivity suites. If it climbs over 70C during stress testing I'd recommend dropping the Vcore and finding the max stable overclock that you can reach without exceeding 70C.
