Intel i5-750 OC help

I'm new to Overclocking, and wanted to know the best settings/multiplier for the i5-750 without changing the stock fan, or if to go to a level that needs a new fan/cooling system, what would you recommend?

List your system specs please (mobo, ram, psu, etc)..

With stock cooling you may not get too far. But its really up to you to figure out how far. I can say you will get a couple hundred mhz out of it with stock voltage and cooler. But every chip is different.

In your case, Keep the highest multi, and push the bus up until it doesnt boot/windows freezes on you. Then back it down several bclk and get back to windows... Run a stress test program like Prime 95 if it passes for several hours, you are good to go.

Keep temps under 80C while stress testing that CPU.

CHeck out the guide in my signature too.
