No, The OS reading is correct.

Your vcore is a quite low 1.41v then since the load after droop is the critical voltage ,Judging by your temps you can afford to crank it up a bit more if you need to but I would try to reduce droop also if you can,
but dont remove it, A small vdroop is better than none I say.

Average vcore for Q6600 @ 3.6 is 1.45v judging by this old list...

A couple of little fans on the chipset cooler pipe sink set-up thingum would probably help your mobo live a little longer also, Since they are connected by that one pipe a fan over the SB would also help the NB stay cool I reckon even though you don't really need a fan on the SB
