No. The E5200 @ 2.5GHz should be fine. Even at stock, you should be ok, but the E5x00 series are VERY overclockable.
You can get it to 3.0-3.2GHz with no voltage change and the stock cooler. It can reach around 3.6GHz at only slightly above stock voltages and with a cheap aftermarket cooler (I use a cheap $12 thermaltake cooler). It can also hit 4.0GHz with some effort and voltage changes.
suppose i shall push it to about 3.00~ then since i dont have any money left to buy anything else, i upgraded CPU , GPU and PSU, when i have money next will be the RAM i have 4 sticks but two are OCZ 800mhz and the other are like 667 and 444 lol ... so im gonna purchase two mor 800mhz to get duel channel working
Just make sure you get that stock intell heatsink mounted properly. They can be a bit tricky. My brother had the same chip and could not figure out why it would not OC and when he checked the heat sink it was not even making contact with the cpu because of the design.
