    I've had my q9550 to 3.4 before. I currently have it running at 3.2. You must have an aftermarket cooler. If you don't, there's no point to overclock a core2quad. They run a lot warmer than i-core CPUs.

    One thing is every system is different. Some can go much higher in clock rates. Other can't because of stability. Have you read the overclocking thread? http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/259899-29-core-overclocking-guide It's a lot to read but it is necessary. Take your time to read all of it.
