Default 3800x S939 OC question

I have a 3800x I just overclocked it to a 2250 with a standard retail fan. Here are my questions. At what speeds is it recommended that I purchase a zalmon (sp) fan? When should I change the voltage on my cpu. I have tried to research this on the net in google, though I'm finding it difficult to find any good results. Any suggestions?

3800x AMD, ASUS-E mobo, four 512 sticks of ddr400 (duel channels), Nvidia 7900gt OC, 80gig, 120gig, 200gig, 320gig, 400gig WDs, and a Soprano case

get a Scythe Ninja, and anything up to 1.55V should be fine on that processor with the Scythe. When things start getting unstable, bump up the vcore. you might need to bump up the Vdimm too, if not lower the divider.
