I have a Q6600 running now for years @ 3,5 Ghz. From my experience you always need a better cooler than stock to get the most out of the CPU. Thats why I bought a thermalright and a big 120 fan to keep it as cool as possible. If you really want to be an OC'er you have to give up on stock coolers! Good luck !
