Here is a snip:
Intel’s Core 2 line of CPUs have historically been pretty strong performers in the overclocking department, so we had high hopes for the Core 2 Duo E6750. Thankfully, we weren’t disappointed. After only a little bit of tweaking, we were able to break 3GHz at stock voltage – the CPU was barely breaking a sweat. Ultimately we were able to overclock the CPU to 3.96GHz (8.0x495) at 1.45V.

There was another review for another website ( I can't remember now..) that they hit the same speed but they did it with the stock cooler I couldn't find that statement in the preview above that I link here but I believe they did it as well.
