About the stability and the low temps, you'll find that out after you actually build a system out of it and try to overclock it.

So... depending on the MB, preferably an AN7 or an NF7 ver2 ABIT, a good PS and good RAM it may see 2500MHz.
It's default settings are 11x200 and the "11" is locked so you would have to up the FSB and along with that the RAM speed will increase!
If you want to be absolute on the CPU... down CPU-Z from cpuid.com and it will verify the Core.
