2.87GHz now. Had to raise the voltage a lot. Idle 24C.

EDIT: jumped to 38C running Prime95.

I am at 3.01GHz now. ~25C idle. Seems stable, except that Prime95 is returning some fatal errors. Gonna fine-tune later, try to use lower voltages.
The Scythe Infinity is really doing a great job (using the stock fan).

Chipset temp is 37C. To lower it, I could try to install the optional NB fan (board is passively cooled) which came with my motherboard, if it fits (Scythe Infinity is huge).
I could also take off the plastic covers which are on the heatsinks, and I could re-install them using AC5.
