I'd say 3.6 is pretty good odds on a Q6600, the bigger question is how much voltage you'll need to make it stable, and by extension, how much cooling you'll need. There's a huge difference in heat output on those chips between 3.2 and 3.6, and you may find that you need louder fans than you like to hold things at the latter speed.
