Default

also, speedstep will help temp at lower load (idle etc...) since it is making you cpu ''underclock'' when not in use, thus generating less heat.

Intel also designed their cpu, so that if they become to hot, they will shut down. I would not mind much, unless you want to fold or run any application that will charge your cpu at 100 % 24/7.

If you do want to overclock, you need an aftermarket cooling solution for sure.
