It's hard to tell. CPUs are just like that.

I had the EXACT same problem on my Q6600.

No matter what voltage I set it to (1.8v+) or what board I was on (680i/P45), it would NEVER budge above 3.6Ghz.

You could return it, I suppose, and pay the 15% restocking fee, if the extra 300Mhz are worth it to you.

But I think you've got a fantastic-performing chip at low voltage.
I say.. keep it.

So far it is stable at 1.42 after lowering the memory voltage to 1.5 maybe that was a problem. oh yeah, stable for 3 hours.
