The amount you can overclock is realative to the Temp. of the CPU and case. Hence the cooler you are the better your can O/C, and the safer it is. Anytime you're going to O/C a computer you should make sure to have a good HSF combo on that CPU so you dont fry it. Case ventilation is equally important. If your case Temp is hot no matter what HSF you have you cpu will be hot. I recomend at least one intake fan and one exhuast fan, but 2 of each is much better and the norm for most O/Cer's.
