In fact I can run it overclocked below the default voltage. I will be tempted to try a higher overclock very soon.
My highest was 3.1 GHz without altering the voltage. But like I said, the stock fan goes ballistic. The noise is annoying. Even with the default 2.4 GHz speed I have to ensure the air in the room is circulated well and kept cool at all times.
