when you overclock your going to creat more heat so the 50-60 dollars your going to save will have to be spent on cooling. . . . that said overclocking is really only good when your processor gains a little age and you wanna get it to catch up or for gaming freaks who want the extra umph . . but its not a good way to save money. what you wanna do is a small overclock so might get away with it on some good air cooling say about 50 + dollars on a good heat pipe heat sink and some fans, if not youll have to shell out a good 200 on water cooling
