Do you have positions in your case to add fans? at least one intake at the front and one if not two exhausts at the rear.
What case do you have?
Can you post a picture of the inside of it?
How is your cable management? (and therefore airflow)

You would make 3.0GHz or there abouts with reasonable temps with a stock cooler (depending on your ambient air temps) to try any further than that with the stock cooler would be "risky"
After market coolers that work well with the Q6600 are Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme (large) Tuniq Tower 120 (large) Thermalright IFX-14 (massive) Zalman 9700NT (medium)
The Zalman is probably the easiest to fit, all will require the removal of the m/board from the case to fit the back plate.

CoreTemp only works with core architecture processors
