I usually recommend that when 4+1 be used to overclock a 125W processor it be quality and have mosfet cooling on it. Now with the Dark Knight cooler as opposed to stock, there's no way any air will get to the VRM area whatsoever.... = no heat movement, no heat radiation whatsoever. This is where it gets risky i.e. if you run a really long stability test the temperature piles up and my reach unsafe levels. The small heatsinks may help with the radiation part at least, largely.
