My CPU will do 3.6 Prime stable with a slight voltage bump, but I don't run anything that I can see a performance difference "other than synthetic benchmarks." There is a negligible difference that I can see if I run fraps, but it is totally unnoticeable with the naked eye.

I can definitely tell a big difference between 2.4 and 3.2 though.
Yeah, that is why I don't leave mine at 4Ghz for daily use even though it's Prime stable at that speed with higher vcore.
