all I can say is I have a q6600 with a vid of 1.2875v and I have it stable at 3.38ghx (9x375 1.3875vcore ) but it runs hot with my zalman 9700 led , ambient of 15c no load is about 31 100% load you are talking 67 c
I am just trying 1.45vcore @ 380 x 9 (400 mhz fsb strap ) and with all the doors off and a 920 inch fan blowing into the box it is a 72c tjunction on a occt run
I believe the q6700 may be a better bet to get 3.4 to 3.6ghz

are you in the uk ?
as a guy is selling some q6600 oems for £125 & q6700 oems for £149 delivered HTH

Q6600 is 65nm chip which will run a bit hotter but should oc a little bit better than the Q9### but it will run cooler.

Another thing Q9### are a new chip you may need to flash bios.

I would get a Q6600 or Q6700 they are cheaper

Q6700. The Q9450 and only is a bit faster with a larger L2 cache which is only needed if you are video editing.

Runnning your current board Asus P5E X38 you'll have to def do a bios update to run a Q9### and even then it might not unitiles it. I would stick with Q6600 or Q6700. Get the Q9### when you up grade your mobo to a P45/790i

If you just game( no video editing ect...) get an E8400 instead.It clocks higher and you won't use the other 2 cores gaming.
