Default OCing on 955 BE Stock cooler

hey guys, how much do you think you can overclock the 955 on a stock cooler, do you think it would be alright on 3.4ghz?

It's not a major overclock, so it may work. Just run Prime and watch that the temperatures don't go north of 65 c.

The stock cooler is decent, and that overclock is barely one, I would assume it would work without any problems. As Exlibris said, just watch your temps. And why not try to get a better cooler ?
