I picked up an old s5 a while back.  

Right now I have it set at 375,  getting 1.3-1.4 GH/s.  One chain seems to max out at about 57 degrees, and the other one about 10 degrees cooler (chain 1 is the hotter of the two). Is the difference in heat normal? Or should I maybe pull it apart and give it a good cleaning?

Right now I am running it with the stock fan, with the blue wire removed to disable PWN as I heard stories of them frying when they loose internet. Im assuming they fixed that via firmware, but I prefer the fan maxed anyway.  I also have one of these on order that will arrive tomoorw for the pull on a push/pull setup  Looks like it should work pretty well.   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009OWRMZ6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My question is when overclocking, is my main concern to watch the heat and hardware errors and if they are acceptable I can still crank it up?

EDIT: Im using a 980 watt server power supply model number  "DPS980CBA"
