I have a L2 and just for reference my max is 3.33 at 1.55v but I run 3.2 at 1.49.
Not sure, I don't have it anymore so I couldn't tell you

My 4gb DDR3 arrived today
So it's time to see what I can do now
Oh, and I was going to ask you guys on your opinion, if I get a new setup. Do you think I should just get like a core2quad 4mb l2? You think that would be sufficient? Or should I scrap the board all together and go for a new build?
I guess what I'm asking is, how outdated am I really?
No, to be honest if you want a new build I would look at getting a new CPU and motherboard; either go with AM3 (Phenom II X4) or Sandy Bridge (i5 or i7).
And those temps are pretty good, I was getting about 50C load on my E6400 at the same clock as you, and using stock volts
Probably no need to worry unless you're going above about 65 for extended periods.
