I have it OC'ed to 3.6 right now. Are my temps good? It idles at around 40-50(Core 1,2) and 30-35(Core 3,4)

if you're doing strictly cpu stress testing ditch prime95. Go get Intel Burn test v 1.9

Be careful, watch your temps, and make sure your residual values are the same.

Also, do maximum test, about 25-30 runs.

If you fail linpack testing I doubt you're stable. If you are thinking that IBT will break something then your CPU is way too hot. my q6600 is clocked at 3.4 with 26-7c idle ( idles don't mean anything ) and around 58-60c load..I ran 25 runs with ibt and was stable. Ran prime95 blend and failed.. that was my mem being unstable. clocked down mem and now i'm 100% stable.

Reseat your heatsink, reapply your thermal compound properly..usually a line across the cpu will do the trick.

I'm guessing your VID is lower than mine by the vcore you're using for 3.6
