I'd not reccomend you OCing with the stock Intel fan, you should invest in a good aftermarket heatsink if you are serious about overclocking.

Also read the C2D and C2Q overclocking guide in the stickies. Great guide, it'll probably answer/solve most of your questions.

Well you can overclock a BIT with that stock cooler.(~300-400 Mhz).
But ocing with stock cooler any more furthur also not recommended from my side.

Just keep watch on temps though.
