    I saw a lot of people reported getting 3.4, 3.6 on air with E6600 at low voltage such as default, 1.385 or 1.4v... I have struggled to get mine Prime stable (12 hours) @ 3.0, 1.425v. I know it's a little bit high for 3.0Ghz but anything under 1.425v prime will fail after just 5-7 mins. If I set default Vcore at 1.385v @ 3Ghz Windows posted ok and I could run everything fine (games, encoding...) only prime failed.
    My idea of OC is for everyday use not to reach sky high speed to run SuperPI or 3DMark briefly.
    So the question is what is the highest speed E6600 can achieve ON AIR, Prime stable for 12 hours or a long period and at what voltage :D

    Core E6600 B2 @ 3.0, 1.425v
