Is it worth using on an overclocked processor?

I would use nothing but liquid cooling when over-clocking any component.

No.. And in most probability, it'll mess up with your overclocking.. Am not aware of the recent developments (if any) with regards to CnQ though.. I made few experiments sometime back and the results made me apply an overclock while turning off CnQ..

Camel droppings! (Hey, I work in Saudi Arabia. :) )
The majority of overclocked systems, including my four, use air cooling.

I haven't built an AMD system in years, so I do not know how well Cool 'n Quiet works. On my Intel systems, I turn off Speed Step, develop the OC settings, then reenable SpeedStep. Final test is small fft's (CPU) and blend tests (memory) for 24 hours each.

Stability is pretty important to me. Been doing this for a few years.
