Almost forgot. My cpu fan is blowing directly at the rear exhaust fan.
"My cpu fan is blowing directly at the rear exhaust fan."
Ok foregive me if I interpet this wrong but it sounds like the fan is sucking air out of the heatsink. It should be blowing in to the heatsink. If pulling air out it only gets the tip ends of the fins and not enough air, if any is passing over the rest of the fin's surface. If I'm reading this right turn the fan around so it blows in to the heatsink.

Zalman 9700 is a heatpipe cooler with the airflow to the rear of the case, the exhaust side of the Zalman is directed at the case exhaust fan, mine is set up the same way.

although i found the rest of your post a bit pretentious i'll have to agree that those are all good solutions for cooling a dual/quad box.

Also the CPU fan shouldn't be facing towards the exhaust fan, it should be facing the front of the case and should be blowing air through the HS.

Also make sure your Zalman 9700 is turned up all the way. I had a similar problem, but then realized my Zalman fan nob was turned all the way down. 70c on a stress test, turned it all the way up, and now it only get's to 60c on a stress test with cpu throttling @ 100%

So I know something must be wrong here.
Also, you should be able to get close to that high without messing with the vcore. Make sure you keep a 1:1 ratio with your ram

I got mine to 3.15GHz w/o messing with the Vcore.

Wait a minute, 1.4V is quite high for a Q6600. Do you have the G0 stepping? I do and I use a 1.275V Vcore at 3.2GHz
