Yes, if mounted properly, the TX3 should out-perform the OEM heatsink. For future reference, OCing with an OEM heatsink is not recommended by many. They really aren't designed to handle the additional heat generated by the CPU.

How much depends on many factors, including having stable power, good airflow, and a properly mounted heatsink, for example.

Just increase your settings in baby steps and test along the way. Once you start seeing instability, drop off a bit and declare success.

Good luck!
