Default Is this normal???!

I was running my q6600 at 3.2ghz but decided to bump it up to 3.6 @
vcore 1.437v
mem 2.11v
fsb 1.46v
sb 1.58v
Everything seems stable but its the temps that scare me, any suggestions?

EDIT: Forgot to mention my other components, Im running
ASUS P5N-D 750i mobo ver. 0302 bios
G-skill ddr2 800 mem
And for my cpu cooling ive got Water cooling with the Reserator v2
Is speedfan glitched and giving me the wrong temps?

BTW what is
"B3, G0, L2, M0 Stepping
B2 Stepping"
Ive been reading about those somewhere do those affect my temps? If so where can i turn those off/on(if it will help)?

It is hard for me to see your temps with the image you provided, but anytime you overclock your CPU you are sure to run a bit hot. Just make sure you are using a good heatsink and fan, or just water cool it if necessary. Also have you ran Prime 95 to make sure it is stable?

Oh I can see them now. My temps are around the same thing and I don't even have any overclocking. They should be fine, although I'm surprised that they are not lower since you are water cooling. That is probably ok though, I don't know much about water cooled systems.

those temps are fine. i would suggest using Coretemp, as it is a bit more reliable then speed fan. but from what speedfan is showing your temps are fine. just don't let the cpu temps get above 71C

I also have the P5N-D. Those temps look normal, right now in the summer my motherboard is idling 43c @ 1.36v. Your temps look fine.
