If you're on a budget get a Thermaltake Volcano 12 (about 30 dollars). If money is not an issue then get a Thermalright Si-97 with a 92mm tornado (about the best air cooling avaliable for socket A ATM)

The only way to really know what's safe for your CPU is to overclock little by little, dont take big jumps in voltage and keep an eye on your temperatures everytime you make changes. Also set a shutdown temp of about 60C so if something bad should happen the PC would just shut down and not damage the CPU.
