250 -270 FSB would probably be a good starting point which probably won't require any voltage bumps. From there, I'd go up 5 - 10 FSB looking for windows bootable, and adjust voltages as required to get into windows.

Don't forget to keep an eye on your memory speeds, and keep it within reasonable limits.

You're probably thinking of something like DIY-Street's overclocking database.... there is something similar out there for C2Ds based on stepping, but I don't think it includes full information on memory settings and such.

I'd use 1333MHz (333) as the starting point. Should run fine at that without any extra voltage. At least both my E6420 and E6600 did.

To make things easier, if possible unlink the memory speed from the FSB and set the memory to 800MHz (400), or whatever it's rated at. Then you won't need to worry about the memory for now.
