Custom / Rampage extreme

Specs: Windows 7, 2.4 GHz / 4095 MB
Hi. I'm quite new to Overclocking and wondered if my speed was good:
Q6600 2.4GHz taken to 3.6GHz.
FSB 400
Multiplier x9.0
Core voltage 1.408
It seems very stable I have thrown all the benchmarks I have at it and Temp have never yet reached 60c but normaly stick around 38-42c.
and around 22c per core.
Also whats a safe max temp for the q6600?

Thanks

I don't understand board manufacture why put ddr3 in socket 775? High fsb in socket 775 cpu is 1333 it needs ddr2 667 to maintain ratio 1:1 for eg c2d e8400 with ddr3 1333 how to maintain ratio 1:1?By overclocking cpu to 666 but they know it's very hard(sometimes it's impossible) to pump fsb from 333 to 666,with ddr3 it's hard to maintain ratio 1:1.

4 hours, IMO, isn't Prime stable. Besides, give the Intel Burn Test a go and see what happens. Have a look at CoreTemp while you're at it as it will give you the Tmax of your CPU too.

It isn't? How long would you like to see him run Prime95; two weeks???

Sarcasm Skip? That's not like you.

12-24 hours is usually enough, however I have had "prime stable" overclocks die in the arse after two runs of the Intel Burn Test.

I tend to run Prime95 for 12-24 hrs too.

You could probably up that frequency a little more if you pump up the volts too.
