  1. Read the stickies. You need at least three: one for C2D's and Q's, one for your specific motherboard, and one for voltage and temperature management.

    And until you get an aftermarket HSF, forget about it. The HFs's for the second generation C2 CPU's are just big enough to work at the stock frequencies.
  2. Here are two of the three links:
