    Specifically an AMD 64 3000+ running at 2ghz. I believe it's a socket 754. Now if it idle's around 26-28 degrees will I need to get some kind of other cooling solution in order to overclock safely? And is this something I want to have overclocked all the time for the rest of the computer's lifetime or only when I'm playing really intense games? The inside of my computer looks like a fucking rats nest with all the drives and expansion cards, so I don't think a case fan would do the trick. But if you can suggest a good heatsink it might be a better solution.

    Your temps aren't bad, stock cooling should carry you to a "mild" overclock without extreme rise in voltage. IF you've got to pump .3v+ into it you'll want more than stock.
