Its very hard to make a mistake. My PC is used for university work too, it has to be a 101% stable overclock for me to be happy. A modest overclock on that q6600 will be perfectly safe if you ask the guys on here, and you'll be getting more for your money. Chips only fry on really high voltage or really high temps, its unlikely either of these can be caused by mistake.

But if you're not at all happy with it, you're probably best just absorbing information off of here until you feel confidant.
