Q6700 SLACR & Foxconn X48 BlackOps overclocking

As you can see from the title I have a Q6700 (with a Akasa AK-967) on a Foxconn X48 board, my ram is OCZ Gold 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz.

So far I have been able to push the CPU to 3.3ghz P95 1hr stable with a slight increase to the voltages (both CPU and NB). I appear to have hit a block at 3.3Ghz but I'm sure I should be able to get this to 3.5.

One issue I have is that when the CPU is running at 3.3Ghz I notice that when I'm playing COD4 I get a lot of stuttering stop/starting which I don't get when the CPU is at stock speeds. The is no where near maxed out in fact it's running slower then it's advertised speed of 1333ghz due to the FSB setting. Also the motherboard has to be an overclockers dream, it has every tweaking option you could wish for and a lot of options that mean nothing to me, i only got it because this X48 was £20 cheaper then P45 boards and seemed like a good deal and the reviews I've seen have all been positive. Temps are around 65 at full load.
