Use CoreTemp, Everest, RealTemp, or HW Monitor to check your temps Speed Fan is always off.

Though those temps + Vcore are high? For your overclock atleast.

Also, what CPU cooler are you using?

For that Vcore + a good overclock you need a better cooler.

Those temps are believeable if your running a stock heatsink, or even an aftermarket heatsink that may be clogged with dust. Maybe you need better case ventilation or back off on the oc a notch.
The older Q6600's ran hotter. Get some better cpu cooling.

Looks like you need a better CPU cooler, as that one isn't doing the job, also as others have mentioned, use core temp for reading temps on a Q6600. It's more accurate.

Also..is that a load temp, or an idle temp? Cause if that's an idle temp...you have big problems lol.

Find a way to mount a 120mm fan somewhere close to the sink, should help.
Yeah! upgrade your heat sink will defiantly help out.

I just looked up the cooler...didn't see that he told us what it was in a previous post. Not to be overly critical, but that thing doesn't look like anything special, and if your Q6600 just likes running hot like mine does, it's not gonna do the job.

If you have a stock HSF then try upgrading to a better one.
Also, you could try opening up your case and removing all the dust (paying close attention to your HSF).
You could also try adding case fans (I would try to find silent ones and normal ones usually get on peoples nerves!)
