Default My overclocking project.. the goal 3.6 Ghz

Ok guys, I had been expending a lot of time (since monday) to overclock my q6600 since I got my new Asus ENGTX260 (216 cores) and new shiny 4Gigs OCZ Reaper PC-8500 kit (nice memory and fast), right now I had reached 9x356 (3200) at 1.35 Vcore (CPUZ says it is at 1.2526V) and memory is at 1068Mhz (have read in a lot of reviews that this memory can reach at least 1100Mhz), for now is stable, right now is running prime95 since I woke up at 5:00 AM, maximum temps are between 48ºC to 54ºC on load (prime 95 maximum heat test) and idle temps are between 27 to 32ºC, cooling is a thermalright ultra extreme with a Papst 1600rpm fan and Zalman STG1 goop (when I get home I´ll post pics of my rig). I had removed the heatsinks of north and southbridge and changed the goop with AS5 and adding a 40x40mm fan on northbridge (I had upped the voltage 0.1V on both for stability), my goal is to reach 3600Mhz without overvolting too much, below you´ll see a screenshot of my last stable result.

Do you have some advice or comment, please share it!
