Default Re: Is Q6600 @ 3.0ghz w/stock cooler possible?

Yes its possible, I hit 3.6 and was there for about a week on the stock cooler. It would load at 68*C 1.4V (Now 3.2Ghz 1.35v 59*C Until the WC is finished)

You also have to consider other things like case flow and ambient temps.

I see 100+CFM through the case

My normal ambient temps at my computer are 66-68*F

I LOVED my Tuniq Tower on my E6600. I think that currently its the best bang for your buck.

Good luck in OC'ing
Q6600@3.8Ghz/ EVGA 790i Ultra/ EVGA 9800GX2/ and some H20
