Instead of guessing and asking for advice from people who have never overclocked a thing or who repeat things they heard incorrectly - start overclocking and measure and observe the temps on your northbridge. If it gets hot then add a cooling device.

As a rule if you increase voltage, you increase temps. Some people will stop overclocking at some point, others will use water or other methods to keep going... you need to decide what your limit is... we cant tell you that....
