You can still raise your frequency a little bit without having to raise voltage.
but you will not be able to increase it by much.

Do not disable this stuff until you get your aftermarket cooler :

Advanced Chipset Features:
sub menu System Clocks
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
sub menu CPU Configuraion
CPU Thermal Control: Disable
So I shouldn't do what ericeod just posted?

I would only increase the vcore to the point that your temps under load stay below the max of 71C. I listed that in the post (hence the Q6600 specs). So if you find that as you increase your vcore causes the temps to surpass that, you are in danger of damaging the CPU.

My recommendation to you is to get a good after market cooler.

That's pretty hot stock temperatures. I would say get an after market heatsink & fan before you start over clocking.

I think the stock cooler is fine for now. TaiDinh used it and overclocked his Q6600 to 3.31GHz with success. Personally, I would try not to raise the voltage too much.

I got up to 3.1ghz and the temps were up in the high 60's. Pretty sure that's a bad idea seeing how that's idle load.

I lowered it to 2.7ghz and I'm staying roughly the same as at 2.4ghz.
