Yeah, but you may want to buy a heatsink for the processor that is better than the stock one. I would recommend the Tuniq Tower 120, and some Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste:

Hmm, I may wait and not over clock the processor until I have that heatsink... How important do you think it is to have the heatsink if I just overclock the mobo, and maybe slightly (maybe not at all) overclock the processor??

the heatsink that comes with A C2D is good for a starting OC. so you can do a little bit before you get a new one. just keep an eye on those temps.

Yeah, you can probably get another .5 GHz or so rock solid, but after much more than that, it gets iffy.
