I know 3.6ghz is safe because people w/ mediocre after market coolers can run at 3.6. Its not that its not safe, its just that I'm doing something wrong with the settings.

ok , what after market cooler have you got (im interested)
i have zalam 9700NT and running Q6600 at 3.4 Ghz

with your overclock , assuming that you have 800mhz ram , set it to 800mhz , not 973Mhz

and raise you FSB Vcore to 1.3

just quickly try that and get back to me

That's pretty low if you're trying for 3.6GHz, I would have thought more in the 1.4v region. As mentioned earlier, leave the memory at stock until the cpu is stable.

On this board I needed 1.3750v for 3.6GHz and it wasn't fully stable even then, for 3.2GHz I needed 1.2375v.

On my old P5K I needed 1.55v in the bios to boot at 3.6GHz the vdrop/vdroop was that bad. Thankfully the P5E3 is better.
