    It depends on how much you plan to overlock it by, if you are only looking to overclock upto 3ghz then it should do the job just fine, but if you plan to go more then just keep an eye on the temp when stress testing and see how well if performs, you never know it might be ok. Also use a decent thermal paste eg Artic Silver 5...

    Have fun,
