I want to know how far can i go with stock cooling on a e5200 with P5B SE mobo? Will i reach at least 3.5 Ghz 24/7 stable ? And if not , can you recommend me some coolers that are cheap and effective in the same time? Thanks. :)

Overclocking is a function of your entire system (mobo, cpu, psu, memory, cpu cooling, case cooling, etc), list a few more components and we could possibly help you.

Why don't you go find out yourself? We can't overclock your system for you.

Yep as stated you can only know the answer by doing it.
I will tell you though I have 2 friends with the E5200.
One is using an asus p5q pro and 2x2 GB of corsair RAM and using Windows 7 beta 64 bit OS and has his at 3.6ghz 24/7.
The other has E5200 with my old Asus p5b deluxe and 2x2 GB of Corsair using Vista 64 bit and has his at 3.25 ghz 24/7.
For the cost, they are nice little chips imo.
ASRock extreme 3 gen3
Intel i5 2500k Sandy Bridge
Patriot Signature 2x4GB PC3 12800
Sapphire HD 6850
Corsair Gaming Series GS600
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Windows 7 Home Premium

so i stopped for a bit and destroyed a 12 layer lasagna,

I had an e5200 and had it overclocked to 3.6 with the arctic cooler 7 pro with loads of 73c which I thought was good for a $25 cooler.. that was on a evga 750i FTW mb. it is a decent processor for the price. just no L3 cache
