Im trying to OC my Q6600 for the first time (yeah, im 2 years late!) and have gone to 3.2ghz pretty easily. I have read the fabulous OC guide here on toms but I gotta admit its a bit much for me :p 
I have left all voltages on auto, set my ram timings at 5-5-5-15 (stock) and I am running 8x400 fsb. Prime is running and im reading 61-ish degrees with a Zalman 9700.
What I am wondering is, where do I go now? I have a feeling I could go further, but im not comfortable messing with the voltages too much without a bit of advice. When I started windows CPU-Z said 1.44v on the cores, but running Prime I get a bit lower readings. What gives?
Hope anyone wants to help a newbie =)
Oh, and my mobo is a Gigabyte EP45-DS4.
Thanks in advance.

Better you mess with the voltages then to leave them on Auto and let the MB overvolt the heck out of them.

For your voltage question Google "vdroop".
