Question Min i7 920 OC to get bigadv bonus?

Hey guys, I am thinking of moving my i7 920 folding rig into my LC17B HTPC. However, I don't have a low profile HSF for the CPU that will fit in my LC17B case. So until I find one I will be forced to use the stock HSF. If I run the stock 2.66 will I qualify for the bigadv bonus? If not, what is the min oc needed to get it? And lastly, any suggestions on a good low profile HSF for the i7 920?

It is supposed to need about a 3.2 Ghz 920 to finish the units in time for the bonus.

You will receive bonuses w/ a stock i7 920. Around 17k - 20k ppd depending on how much you use the system.

I have an i5 750. The A3 units are giving me a bonus. I get around 7000 ppd instead of 2000 ppd. It takes me about 8-9 hours to complete one unit and that's using only 3 of my 4 cpu cores ( I like to keep 1 core free for my GPU folding and general computer usage )
