Default Question about overclocking

I'm new to overclocking, and I was wondering what exactly makes the computer unstable when you overclock too far?

It's basically the heat factor ... the stability becomes questionable only when the temps get out of hand ...

That's exactly why cooling plays such an important role in overclocking

So, if you cool your computer better, but everything else is still the same, you would be able to overclock a bit further right?

Also, what temperature would it be dangerous to run your system? It's getting near to the summertime and I don't got air conditioning.
