Oh and I dident break 50c on stock cooler either.
The cpu actually is quite overvolted out of the box.
I'm too lazy to import this into a google spreadsheet, but this was my voltages from 3.0ghz all the way up to 4.4.
As you can see, it only requires 1.075vs to run at 3.0ghz. Talk about an overvolt out of the factory! You'll also notice the CPUNB requires less as well.
YMMV, but those are my findings. I have yet to do this with 6 cores, but it's in the works.
This is why I wish you could set voltages by individual cores. For the most part, I only need 1 or 2, but when I start really multitasking the additional ones help. Intel actually has the system right where you can shut off cores not in use to save power and completely boost cores that are in use. AMDs turbo was supposed to be the competitive solution, but it fell short, way short.
I've heard rumors that if you set the HTT high and the multi low, you can save some voltage headroom, but I'm yet to see this. Perhaps it was true, but with the new processors it is not. I'm still testing it, of course.
