G.Skill RipJawz RAM @ 1600, 9-9-9-9-24 timing

I have been itching to overclock my CPU for awhile now, I only have a stock cooler atm, and I AM planning on getting a standalone noob watercooling kit, or a really good air cooler.
So guys, what would be a safe area to overclock using only stock cooling?
If so, what would be some good settings to reach those speeds?
The highest will get 3.5 - 36 ghz max, and even then must be
provided ear resistant to noise from cpu fan because
have smart fan disabled in the bios.
For safe oc step by step, Just oncrease multiplier up u p test and test. Always keep temperature below 60c. And your fan run over 5000 rpm, that very noisy.
But better for safe oc use after market cooling, minimal hyper cm 212.
