But I dont know because I don't want to bet on stock heatsinks.

Btw, do you think its ok to OC on stock? Just a minimal boost to 2.8 on stock if thats alright with my idle temps.
You should be able to oc safely as long as you have < stock volts. voltage effects heat much more then clock speed.
In your case, stock cooling is a good thing. if you had a big tower cooler(like a hyper 212+) then your mobo wouldn't get much cooling, and your vrms would probably over heat and die(or shutdown the system if you're lucky).
I am assuming we are all talking about your sig rig...
