Default Ordered new CPU/Heatsink,have questions.

I Just Ordered an OCZ Vendetta 2

I Have a few questions,

1.Whats the best method to apply Thermal heatsink paste?

2.What kind of speeds should i be able to reach on my current CPU with this HSF?

3.Are there any things i should watch out for when OC'ing the Phenoms? (I have only ever overclocked my GPU and my old P4....)

1. http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...d=170&Itemid=1


2. with out a voltage increase many people are getting to 3.4-3.5 GHZ


3. Watch your temps, and when you settle on a speed make sure its stable by passing a couple hours of Prime95

I Think i may lap it,and then fill in the channels with the paste (As shown in the article) and then put two lines of paste as shown in the picture's (I Have a HDT Type HSF).

I Have heard that anything up to 1.55v can be safe for the phenom.

Also i know that anything over 62c is dangerous for the phenom.

I heard that HDT lapping doesn't do anything. I don't have anything to back that up though.
