Thanks and it's fairly average for a Q6600 G-0. Most are landing between 3.6-3.8GHz, with a few doing 4.0GHz or greater:

When I move to water cooling I will be trying for 4.0GHz myself and of course I may be limited to mid 3.8 or 3.9. I can boot 4.0GHz on air and do Pi runs and of course that is nothing like quad Prime. We will see.

BTW I love this 70usd mobo. My i975x BX2 was holding me down to 3.5GHz. Glad I ditched it. If you want an easy OC with your Q6600 try a mid ranged P35 mobo. You can get a RAID capable board for as low as 129usd, and if you don't care about RAID much less.

If you are after performance at any price you may want to wait and see how the X-38 motherboards overclock.
