Those prices are for 1k units not for single unit retails.
First off I said a e6420 or a e6320 so before you try to compare get the facts straight.
As for stock cooler you are correct (to a point). By that I mean the e6750s that have been tested and report those speeds are most likely the "Cream of the Crop" chips that Intel sent out. I am not saying that some of those chips will not hit 3.6 on stock, I am simply saying that is the exception and not the norm. We will not know who is right or wrong until more people get them and start reporting their overclocks.
Neither the e6320 nor the e6420 will reach that high of an OC with stock cooling but I should have elaborated more in my statement and stated with an aftermarket HSF. Whether it's 3.2-3.7 on a e6320/e6420 or its 3.4-3.9(only repoprted on prototype chips not normal retail) on a e6750 the speed difference is not significant enough to justify the extra $50-$100 extra.
This is my personal opinion based on the reading/research I have done and is by no means the gospel.
