Default P4 2.8ghz, safe OC with stock heatsink?

Hello all, using stock cooling and having a case with multiple fans and good air flow, would OC'g a 2.8ghz to around 3.2ghz seem pretty solid? Just looking to get a little more out of the CPU.

Well it all depends on what your temps are now and what thermal paste you're using. You could probably get it up there.

How on Earth does the XPS get the Pentium Extreme Edition up to 4.3? I don't think the XPS is watercooled either.

Yeah, they have a huge heatsink on it and then they box it in with plastic to contain the heat. The plastic box enclosing the processor connects to the exhaust fan in the back shooting all the heat from that processor directly out.
So much for the heat from the 4 gpu's and other components. I don't think those incredibly small fans at the bottom of the case are going to cut it.
