    So I am trying to test my Q6600 G0 at 3.6 (1.5V, yikes!). Should I run 2 Orthos or 4 Prime 95? Is there any other method to stress test? Thanks in advance.

    2 instances of Orthos will do just fine.;)

    You can run the MP version of Folding@Home with all cores at 100%.
    It does a fine job of heating things up.

    I use that version of Prime95 to stress test mine. I couldn't get 3.6 stable unless I ran over 1.5v (WAY hot) so I'm at 1.4875 running 3.512 (44 degrees idle, 68 under load - still HOT).
