Well from my experience I manage to get my E6750 from (2.66GHz) to 3.44GHz this CPU can go higher but in my case there seems to be like an "strapping" of some sort because I can go no more higher than that not even 1MHz more and the memory too can't go more higher than (860MHz) and I'm using the G.Skill HZ DDR 800, but I heard sometime ago about a forum member here that this happened too to another guy with the same CPU and MOBO (GA-P35-DS3R).
Maybe its me I don't know but what I can tell you is I'm very happy with my purchase by the time this CPU was released back in July.
