Default Is this good for overclocking?

CPU: Athlon 64 X2 3800+

Mobo: MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Dual Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, IEEE 1394 PCI-E MB

Processor Cooling: CoolerMaster Liquid CPU Cooling Fan System Kit + 2 EXTRA CASE FANS

I'm planning on overclocking the 3800+ to 2.4 - 2.5 Ghz.Do you think this motherboard + cooling system can handle it?

I kinda doubt that now, 2.6ghz would be lucky.

That also seems like one of those cheap liquid cooling kits, which are no better than air cooling as well :/

It costs around 100 dollars, I'm hoping it's good.

I actually googled some reviews, it's pretty nice.
