Yeah it'll be fine, why don't you drop the voltage some, if the system won't start you can begin to puch the volts back up! I've got to 3.6 on under 1.36 volts (been awhile since I ran it 3.6) I didn't stress test it though, was fine for gaming and watching films

Idle temps are CPU 38 and System 42 in a room thats making me sweet just sitting hear.. didnt wanna risk having my comp freeze up due to low voltage, was gonna start at 1.5v but bottled it..

Ill run prime and see what i get

Blue screened after 5 seconds with prime.. Voltage upped 2 notches.. maybe 3.6ghz was to much for my cpu

Mine doesn't run stable at 3.6 either I've tried up to 1.475v. 8x400 is a snap @ 1.4125 but 9X400 probably won't work without 1.5v or more.

my q6600 isn't the best chip
3.2 works pretty good though.

EDIT:

I had a GA-965p-DS3 and even with Watercooling I was never able to top 9X333 stable on it. I was able to get an E6600 to 8X400 so it might just be my board or possibly memory. When I put the same q6600 in an EVGA 780i with some 800Mhz memory I was able to hit 3.2Ghz with little effort, and as you can tell by my Vcore this is a hot, Voltage hungry q6600.

I bet what was holding me back on the old board was my 667Mhz memory trying to run 800+ considering you're having no trouble running 8X400FSB with the quad and i couldn't get it to run that to save my life.

Have you increased the voltage to the north bridge? and try keeping your memory speed low, 800Mhz works pretty good for me when I'm overclocking

I couldnt get 3.6 to work either.

2.4-3.4 works 100%
3.5 only lasted a short time in Prime95
3.6 havent got it to work.
