Basicly, I'm looking to overclock my i3 530 to at least 3.5Ghz, as many guides suggest is easily achieved.
i3 530 Processor
MSI H55M-E33 Motherboard.
What kind of an investment would I need to be able to overclock it to 3.5Ghz or above?
Right now my temperature rises to above 70 degrees Celcius during a default OCCT stress test, but I assume this is due to my old thermal paste, which I will replace ASAP.
I tried reading guides and such, but I failed to find an explanation of how to estimate what kind of a Cooler/Heatsink I neeed to overclock a processor. Could anybody at least give a rough estimate, or an example?
