3.0GHz @ 1.237V (BIOS)
3.33GHz @ 1.26(?) - I haven't checked what the stable voltage is yet.

I hit also the temperature wall @ around 3.33GHz, last time I checked it was running at 65C case temp, around 72~73 per core temp.
 
3.75 GHz (12.5 X 300 MHz.) @ 1.36 v @ 58 C. (not going to exceed Intel's recommendations).

Will boot at 4.0 GHz, but it's not stable.

BIOS in a GA-EP35-DS3P.

Overclocking since 1978 - Z80 (TRS-80) from 1.77 MHz to 2.01 MHz
