Interestingly, since I got this processor I've seen a number of other people running it on the same or very similar Gigabyte boards at about the same speed I am. I may have been looking at too many hardcore overclockers forums to gauge what speeds I should be getting.
I probably wouldn't have run it much faster than 3.2 Ghz 24/7 anyway, but I wanted to see how fast it could go and when it topped out at barely better than 3.2 Ghz I was disappointed. Ah well, once I got past the initial overclocking stage with this hardware it's been great. Of course, it ought to be since I spent more on it than I probably had all of my previous rigs combined.
