Default Overclocking my E6750

So I'm at 3.4GHz, stock 1.3 Vcore, 57C load, and stable with 2x P95.

My northbridge is up to 1.4v from 1.25v and it's the only thing that is holding me back; not to mention the heatsink is hot to the touch after a few seconds. Should I buy/install additional cooling for the NB, bump up the NB voltage to 1.45V and then try for 3.8GHz or something?

Before I realized it was only the NB holding me back, I had the vcore set to 1.4 and it only loaded at about 62C! With the NB blockade removed, and pushing 1.4 vcore, I imagine this chip could hit some serious speed.

Or should I maybe call it good at 3.4GHz and actually try to undervolt it for low temps?

This has been a very strange overclocking experience...
