Default Overclocking an Intel Pentium 4 2.80G-E Prescott

Ok, I am looking at overclocking an Intel Pentium 4 2.80G-E (800Mhz FSB) Prescott.

My friend tells me that generally these processors are quite hot, and I want to know what is a safe temperature to be running it at.

How high would it be safe to overclock it to?

First you look at your temperature, for most modern CPU's if your temperature is around 30 - 40 degrees when idle it will increase to 37 - 46 under a heavier load.
