Well, you could always try overclocking it and see how far it goes without raising the voltage. That way you can be certain that the temp isn't going to go up.

just keep inching it up and running stability tests each time.

I have mine up to 3.52. I haven't run any stability tests, but since I've been converting some video files and using 100% CPU for the last 3 days with out a problem its looks fine to me. After I'm done with that I'm going to try 3.6.
