and to remove the stock thermal paste your gonna need isopropyl, preferablly above 80%, or it leaves oily residue.

Yes, only if you buy them "retail". That's the keyword. They will come with thermal pads on the bottom of the heatsink. The new heatsinks use copper heatpipes which are real good.

So would the stock heatsink and thermal pads (Im buying a retail, no OEM) be enough to OC it by 200-300Mhz?

yup just monitor your temps. I'm using the stock HSF with some AS5 and it's OCd to 2.4 ghz and temps are just fine.
