Overclock! Your wasting bandwidth. You can get an easy 600 - 800mhz out of your chip. If heat is a problem with your setup then work on getting a new case and fans. I have a coolmaster case I paid 50$ for with the original fans. Nothing was added its a basic setup.
I have stock cooling on my E6600 and its overclocked @ 3.2ghz @ 40C idle - 55C load.
