Ignore this post, overclocking on stock isnt ideal but is a daily occourance, while not optimal its not going to damage your parts if you stay within limits, the OC i gave you was somewhere around 3.4 to 3.5ghz with a respectable voltage, your stock cooler should HANDLE it, not fly by with ease but it is doable, just run realtemp occosianaly to make sure temps arent > 80C or so for prolonged amounts of time.
