Yeah, that's a given. A Q6600 has much more overclocking potential than many of its older, P4 counterparts.

Well then I guess this answers my question on if to get an aftermarket cooler. My Q6600 runs at 48C idle and 69C load at 3Ghz with stock fan.

Okay...you should DEFINITELY go ahead and get an aftermarket cooler. I would never be comfortable with load temperatures like that, and 48*C idle is pretty high, too.

Anything 60c or lower underload are safe temps, so don't worry when you're hitting 50c in Prime95. If you want an aftermarket cooler, I would recommend one of these two:

They both have variable 92mm fans so that the RPM increases/decreases depending on the CPU temperature. I have the OCZ Vendetta and I'm pushing 3.5GHz. I recommended the Freezer 7 PRO as well because it's supposed to a brilliant price to performance cooler and a lot of people are very happy with theirs. If you want a super-cooler and maximum overclocking potential then the Tuniq Tower 120 is very good.
