With a Zalman heatsink or equivalent...3.2-3.6ish. With good RAM and a good mobo (The ones you selected are great for OC'ing)

Tom's hardware Germany tested it out, and they got 3.6Ghz, running stable, with the exact Gigabyte mobo you selected, and this Zalman heatsink:

Even with the Freezer 7 PRO I think he could get 3.4GHz.
