I'm going to attempt an overclock of my E6400 at stock voltage.

The E6600 is said to stumble around 3.6mHz, I've read things as ridiculous as 3.8mHz and up to 4.0mHz for the E6400 at stock voltage. I'll let you guys know what my outcome is - give me about two weeks (still waiting on that RMA motehrboard).

I think you mean Ghz, the E6400 will go higher because when you increase the cache size you increase the difficulty of acheiving higher clock speeds however since you increase the cache you can lower the clock speed, an E6600 at 3.6 or even lower down to 3.2 or 3Ghz will be better than a E6400 at 4Ghx because it can do more work per clock cycle and has a head start performance wise. Even with fairly significant overclocks it takes alot for a 6400 to beat even a stock E6600.

Here is the link to an article where they overclocked a 6300 and a 6400 and were able to achieve excellent performance gains. Of course a lot of it depends on the mobo and bios being used:
