Default 3dmark06 Vista Question

I just installed 3dmark06, under Vista Ultimate x86

My rig is:

Core 2 Duo e6600 2.4ghz
4 gbs DDR2 G.Skill 800 ram
Foxconn 8800gtx 630/1000
EVGA 680 SLI LT

And other stuff that I dont think is important:

80gb and 250 gb hd
antec 900 case
Dual 19'' CRT's

And guess what my score was...

9807...

Isnt that a little low?
I had all the settings in the program turned down to what they were when i loaded it up, i didnt change a single thing.

Help?

How do i go about OC'ing (safely) my CPU?

Could i have some guides? Or something?
I've never done this before

I also have a Zalman 9500 cooler for the e6600, i didnt like the stock cooler.
