You have to understand that while some people will get a higher overclock using the same CPU as you - it doesnt mean EVERY Q6600 will overclock to the same frequency.

Also the same is true of mobo's and their respective chipsets - overlocking is trial and error and lots of patience, there is no gurantee that every chip or component will behave the same.
