Stock cooler + overclocking = fail.

Probably10/15% -take it slow and watch temps as you go. Don't stray too far from stock voltages and get as much FSB as you can . Again -watch those temps.

If you had an AMD dual core you could, other than that your overclocking will be limited.

Just keep a close eye on your temps and don't go too overboard.

I was able to take my E7200 to 3.24 GHz wih the stock HSF and with temps below 65°C. The problem I saw is that my cpu fan was running @ 100%, making a lot of noise. When I upgraded to the Thermaltake I have now, I reduced the temps by 5-7°C if I let it run @ 100%.
Or, I kept my temps at 65°C, but the fan runs at lower speed, making lower noise, which I like.

I Overclocked my 5200 to 3.5 ghz with the stock fan & used this oc for 4 months.
A lot depends on your chip(vid) & temps.My core temps under real world apps(gaming,video encoding,...)was less than 60 C°.Tbh,this was in the fall & winter of last year.

Depends, i oc my e6320 on stock hs from 266fsb to 412fsb.
And the bottleneck was on ram...

So, would u call a 54% OC failure?
