3DMark 06 is more GPU dependent. Yes your 6300 will score higher if its @ 3Ghz and your Q6600 is at stock.

When I ran 3dmark06 with my e6600 @ 3.6ghz I got this and scored 10199: -

SM 2.0 Score 4448 Marks

SM 3.0 Score 4251 Marks

CPU Score 3018 Marks

When I ran my QX6700 @ 3.4ghz I got this and scored 12096: -

SM 2.0 Score 4871 Marks

SM 3.0 Score 4674 Marks

CPU Score 5249 Marks

Some of the score difference was due to a different GPU, but the CPU scores were very different. Check some of the old results and look at the CPU score, there should be a difference.

Overclock the GPU to 600/2000 and the CPU to 3.2ghz - That'll take you nearer 11000 ! :)
