Yes, it is indeed luck of the draw or the particular chip.
Mine does 3.6GHz Orthos blend stable @ 1.45v and 3.7GHz @ 1.55v. It will do up to 3.2GHz on stock volts.
Some people are saying the latest E6600 don't OC that well, and I wouldn't know. I do know the new chips run cooler. My E6320 runs 10C cooler under load and idle than my E6600 @ the same clock. More specifically I mean speeds that don't require extra Vcore, ie 3.0GHz.
