I wouldnt count on 3.6 with the newer Q6600 even with WC. I'd get a Q9450 and a high-end air cooler and call it a day...

Which would be more of an efficient option for me?

I stick with the 9450, or better for the same price the 9550!!

The most stable clock was @ 3.4 with temps in the mid 60s so I was OK, but I wasn't interested in pushing it for that long just seeing what I am capable of. I got a horrible VID
