Should be able to hit 3.2GHz on the stock cooler, 3.4 is where most of the chips max out apparently.

Stock cooler means the one that comes in the box with the processor, so if you're using the one that came in the box then it's stock--if not then you're using aftermarket and should overclock better.

Yeah, I'd aim for 3GHz first and if you can get it stable then maybe try 3.2GHz.

Okay, definitely aim for 3GHz first and if you're feeling frisky try 3.2GHz on for size!

You should leave voltage at auto or stock and only increase it slightly if you're unstable.
