I'm very stable at mine but I think I could reach 3.4.
too bad you didn't have the P35 DS3R, then you could teach me to overclock :P

with coretemp, it says my cores are around 34-39 C after all day messing around (gaming, music, surfing). I'm OC'ed at 3.2ghz on my Q6600 with the AC7.

overclocking i soo easy hehe. Lolz, i didnt even know i would be able to learn it. You just need to know the basics and once you do, then learn how to clock the right way and how both RAM Frequency, timing and CPU FSB will relate and how to get the right voltages and stuff.

My ASUS mobo is a sweet board cuz if i mess up, i dont have to open the case and remove the battery to clear the CMOS, i just unplug it hehe If I had to keep removing the battery, i woulda been fricken pi**ed off cuz I know I would have ended up doing that over and over again. Which really is a pain considering that the battery is right under the GPU PCIE slot so id have to remove that too! and put it back in then remove it again if i didnt get it right

Go to overclock.net
They have alot of resources and I learned a great number of things there. Then while you're going through it ask some specific questions in the overclocking section of this forum.

there are numerous people on slizone and xtremesystems doing it..they just have a HIGH vcore 1.5/1.6

i'd never go that high personally i find 3.4-3.6 to be plenty enough.
