most i see stop at 3.4ghz on p35. rarely someone can go above it in reasonable vcore.

I got 2.8GHz with small voltage increase(1.34 after v-droop) and it was cool on my Zalman CNPS 7000. With a bit more voltage I was able to get it up to 3.0GHz. It ran without going above the rated voltage at up to 2.66GHz. This was all done on my Asus P5B-Plus(Intel P965 northbridge/ICH8R Southbridge) I did not adjust chipset voltages or FSB termination voltage for 2.8GHz, I bumped NB and FSB voltage one notch for 3.0GHz.

I got a E4600 and it's max OC is 3.3 which is dumb. I should have gotten an E4400 or E4500 which OC to 3.4-3.5.

actually they all OC to 3.2-3.4ghz.if you want more you will have to upgrade to E6xxx series. as the lower E4xxx and E2xxx is really bad yield speed binned parts.

I got mine to 3.15 with no volt increase on CPU, ram or chipset.

Other than hard mod, I'm not sure if there's anyway to OC your system. Using Ntune doesn't work either.
