How far do you think I will be able to OC with stock cooling?

This will be my first time overclocking so tips are welcome.

Wow nice. I was hoping to get around 3 Ghz

Would also depend on your case.
And I say that would be a good set-up. Maybe another ram?

As long as you have read that FAQ about overclocking, you'd be fine. =) Good luck.

My case is the antic 900. It seems to keep things pretty cool.

I got to 2.8ghz and didnt want to push it any further because of temps. They were around 55C on load i think, 55-60. That was with my mobo sitting next to my case.
