Wow, that is almost the worst for 775 i have ever heard of, that and the old 90nm Pent-D style. Those chips were terrible!
Honestly though, i run one of my Q6600s OC'd to 3.0GHz on stock voltage and stock intel heatsink and it maxed out at 55c under heavy load. 100% Stable 24/7
(Even before it was in my icecube of a basement)
The other one was in my main rig and is now in my media server and its at 3.5GHz stable with only a slight bump in voltage! It maxes out at 48 but thats likely due to the fact that its on a custom watercooling rig thats integrated into the tv cabinet, it runs two 3X120mm rads. there is just no way that it could overheat! :P

It honestly depends on who made the BIOS for your MSI board, a good bios will be programmed to adapt and run the faster chips at the slower timings, or it just wont work.
Also, its good to hear you have the G0! it means that you should be able to overclock to 3.0Ghz without increasing the voltage! Thus, very little heat over stock speeds!
