Default QX9650 overclocking?

Just wondering what sort of clock speeds you guys got I have seen quite a few people here with this CPU. Just got won one from eBay for 350 OEM which retails at around 650 and the 350 is the same for a Q9550 so I pounced on that. Main reason being I have a ASUS P5N-D (750i) board and overclocking the FSB/Voltages increases the heat immensely and the unlocked multiplier will help in this department. I have a Swiftech Compact 220 watercooling. So just wanting to get an idea. Do you think it's to much to ask to get it to 4GHz (12x333)?

I am not too sure if 05B at the end is the stepping, but ant all 45nm chips either C0 and now C1
