I wouldn't attempt to,The stock cooler isn't good for anything but stock clock speeds.Even than it can get pretty loud.If you have the money and room in your case id look at a hyper 212 evo.They are good for light overclocking.

You may, or may NOT, be able to achieve a small OC with the Intel Stock HSF.

1) Remember, the cooler you keep the CPU, the Happier it will be.
2) The Intel HSF is at The BOTTOM of the performance totom pole for HSF. Old Poster - Surpremelaw use to post that Intel should be sued over the poor design (Back when the E63xx/Q6xx cpus came out.
3) I do NOT even remove them from the BOX, I automatically order a 3rd party HSF when I order a Intel CPU. I leave them in the Box to weigh it down - Have to keep in case you need to RMA then CPU. This even includes my wife's low end, non-OCed, Intel CPU.

If i purchase separate fan than it will out of my budget. :(  :( 
Intel should make good quality of fan. >_<

Yes you can overclock on the stock heatsink. Go into the bios, Select 40X multi and set vcore to 1.15v

A lot of the members on this forum go off what they think is right or something that they read. I'm speaking from experience. The stock intel heatsink is good till 4.2Ghz

Im pretty sure you have some limited OC options with the B chipset

@ Intel God - You Obviously have not noticed the MANY post dealing with the POOR performance of the INTEL HSF - just check the numerous post starting with the E6xx/Q6xx,. I'm sort of an Intel fan boy, but I do believe in calling a spade a spade And the Intel HSF is very close to the bottom of the Totem pole when it comes to performance. Just try running Prime 95 on the Intel HSF and compare to a say Hyper 212, a relatively LOW end - AS I SAID it is best to run any electronics at lower temps.

yogesh_gamer, if you can change the cpu multiplier, you can do a mild OC. Some change the Block freq, max is about 105 which represents ONLY a 5% change - Takes a MIn of 10% to even notice. This freq is also applied to the PCI-e bus and has been known to cause instability.

Back when i first went ivy newegg was slow at getting me my freaking air cooler so i had to run the stock heatsink for a few days. I experimented and even at 4.2Ghz and 1.175v i was only loading at 75C even after playing BF3 for an hour.

If you run the stock cooler and throw it in a case with a single 120mm fan its going to suck but throw it in any modern gaming case and it'll perform fine. You wont break any records but it wasnt designed for that

Yes, you can OC on the stock fan, but a lot of people don't recommend it. I've never tried going excessively high, but mild OCs are possible. The question becomes one of temps. The stock fan won't keep your CPU terribly cool which does have the possibility of causing stability issues, or in worst-case scenarios, CPU damage and shorter lifespan. That being said, it also depends on what kind of load you're throwing at the CPU. Prime95 will max out your CPU more than any game will, so will also drive up the temps more. It's entirely possible that you can get a stable OC for games that would be crash under Prime 95. However that's a safety buffer that most people use to make sure they NEVER have problems in their normal use.

Bottom line, if you just want a slight OC to get a little extra oomph, the stock fan will be ok, though it will be louder and hotter than you'd get from a decent aftermarket cooler. Also, if you're looking at a tower cooler, make sure it fits in your case.

And no, you can't OC your CPU on a B75 chipset, only your BCLK. A P67, Z68, Z75, or Z77 board is necessary to mess with your CPU multiplier.
