Could I clock this up to 2.8 and still have it cool enough with just my stock cooling? I have 4 80mm fans and 1 120mm. Thanks.

Unfourtanatly, the only way to find out is to try. Work your way up slowley, and maybe you'll hit your goal, but I doubt you could get 2.8ghz on stock cooling.

EDIT: Whoa, nevermind. Stock frequency is 2.6ghz, so 2.8ghz could prbably happen. I'd start off small, then work your way up. Try overclocking in 20 or 30 mhz incremints. (mutilated spelling)

Doubt it...but it may be possible. If you are looking for cheap, VERY effective cooling for that, I suggest this. Probably the best air cooling and pretty cheap.

good luck

Increase the multiplier by one more and there you go.

Just go up slow, and watch your temps, keep them under 50c.
