The answer for the last question: It depends on what your bios lets you do.

Post your CPU idle/load temps, the maximum OC for a stock cooled CPU depends on many variables.

I recommend trying CoreTemp. http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com...p/CoreTemp.zip
As a general rule tho, the E6600 can be comfortably overclocked to around 2.8-3.4Ghz. But getting the temps is definatly a smart thing to do before overclocking! if you get low temps and stable system on 3.4, you cn even overclock to around 3.8Ghz.
