ASUS P5N32-E 680i SLI Motherboard
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) HZ's

Nice, I envy the feeling you are having right now of complete joy. Personally I would not buy watercooling for your setup right now especially with a budget of $250. 90% of the overclockers here with e6600 use air cooling, so I would invest in a 120 ultra extreme or tuniq tower with arctic silver 5, and some nice case fans. Just my two cents.

From other people's posts I'd say 3.2 to 3.4 would be a good stable overclock, it all depends on what stepping you have, each cpu is different.

i didnt mean on stock cooling sorry i didnt clarify.

Im definetely thinking of aftermarket cooling, ust not sure if 3.5 is better reachable with something like the Tuniq tower or a 250$ watercooling system.

which air cooling would you guys recommend for this build..,
1) Thermalright Ultra-120 CPU Cooling (can you add a fan to this heatsink?) Link
2) Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler Link
3) ZALMAN 9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler Link
4) Monsoon II Lite Link

Maybe push/pull config for heatsinks withour fans
