Yeah, I have problems getting my Q6600 stable without high voltages too.. every chip is different and your motherboard will play its part. It's really not that easy to hit 3.6-3.8GHz with a low voltage. I've got a B3 stepping and I can hit 3.8GHz, but it needs so much juice that heat becomes an issue. That's obviously because it is an inferior B3 stepping, but also because I probably got one of the worse of the B3 batch, as others have had better results with B3s. Just because you got a G0 doesn't guarantee you the same results as everyone else.
What frequency were you running with 1.65V though?
