Yes, I got kinda of the same OC on my e6300. I think my load temps are lower..

it's a decent overclock.

Most c2d processors OC about 50% though so you should keep trying to push it. I have an e6600 coming hopefully today or tomorrow and am going to squeeze every last bit of performance from it.....going to aim for 3.6-4ghz
