For a serious overclock, you will need better than stock cooling. Here are three under $50 heatsinks that are pretty popular:
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Xigmatec Dark Knight

They all require a somewhat different approach to applying thermal compound.
Suggestions for applying thermal compound:

CPU running at 1.6 GHz is SpeedStep kicking in during times of light CPU loads.

CPU-Z indicates that you are overclocking your RAM (the 1:2 FSB RAM ratio). But that will limit any further CPU overclock once you get a better cooler.To chance to a 1:1 ratio (3rd BIOS screen shot), change your DRAM freq to 533 MHz.

With halfway decent cooling, practically every Q6600 will run at at least 3.3 GHz.

Turn off C1E.
Try CPU frequency to 333.

DRAM 667 or 800 but not 1066 (at least not now, wait until you are at a stable overclock.

Everything else on auto for now.
