No you generally can OC a fair amount without needing to get new heatsink/fan

I would think you could probably hit 2.4 and be ok on stock

If you want to push it to its limits though you will want a 3rd party heatsink such as the Thermaltake Big Typhoon which is HUGE, cools GREAT, and is almost totally QUIET for only $46 on newegg (at least it was yesterday i think)
