I can take this chip up to 3.9 for benchmarking but here is my 24/7 OC with G0 Q6600. I've since been able to drop vcore to 1.35v and its still prime stable, this was my SS at 1.37v though. A good G0 should be able to push 3.2 @ stock volts, 3.4 with a slight bump, etc. You might be giving yours alot more vcore than it needs right now.
Mine needs a lot of volts in order to clock even beyond 3ghz..
I always get the ****ty processors that won't overclock for ****! Well maybe I'll get a q9450(or x3350) later this summer when the prices drop.
