If you are just using this proc for gaming then I would stay between 3.2-3.5ghz since your unstable at 3.6...I dont think your going to notice anything (different) real world with 100mhz as the difference. Let me know of your progress.

Edit: Heres a link (http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...-3ghz-1-a.html) to an existing thread in the forum that discusses others voltages for their q6600..It may be helpful in helping you make a judgement as to what is "safe" to use on your proc. I like to play it safe as $200+ is alot of money for a processor and Id like to make mine last...others might think differently and give it more juice. Its your call : ).
Currently I'm stable from what I can tell with 3.4 @ 1.32 vCore.

I still have these damn driver issues that drive me up a freakin' wall! I'll see what I can do with it this weekend though. I appreciate the feedback!

What driver issues are you talking about?

The nvlddmkm driver that likes to drop out any chance it gets.. its rather annoying. I'm currently running 177.35 with the modded .inf file, still the same result.

Oh! And my computer likes to blue screen during CoD4 at the most random times so I decided to down clock and see what happens.

Do any previous drivers fix the problem?...Yeah downclocking may be a good idea...if your downclocking from the stock specs then you may have a failing card on your hands.

No, I'm not down clocking from stock speeds.. I'd be highly upset if that was the case. About the previous drivers fixing my problems.. yeah, still the same driver drop out.. no luck on my half.
