neoseeker.com: Just like with our E6400, we were able to reach almost 3.2GHz with just the Intel supplied heatsink ? however we knew that was not the limit of this processor, so we switched coolers and used a Noctua NH-12 to try to find the real limit of the processor. Using our Asus P5B, with the latest BIOS, the Noctua NH-12, and two 63CFM 12cm fans, we were able to reach a whopping 3.48GHz with just air cooling!

I am talking running our whole set of benchmarks, without problems, and being completely stable at 3.48GHz.
