Default Q9550 Stock HSF || How far can it OC??

Hey guys

Just wondering, if anyone in here has OCd a Q9550 on a stock cooler, and if so, what speed did you get ?

I can get from stock 2.83 to 3.2ghz -3.3ghz, idle ~45, but on FULL load shes loading up to 85 degrees, that cant be safe ? and in prime 95 only she sky rockets to 100+ and sometimes just powers off (im guessing built in protection to not fry the cpu)

So has anyone oc'd using the stock HSF?

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 || XFX nForce 790i Ultra || Corsair XMS3 PC10666 DDR3 2 X 2GB || 2 x GTX 295 Quad SLI || Antec 900 || Thermaltake Tough Power 1200Watt
