    Try with the stock cooler, and if that doesn't work just get a closed loop liquid cooler.

    Do not try to push this CPU under the stock cooler. It can barely keep this CPU under 60c at full load at stock settings.

    I got my FX 8350 to 4.4GHz on stock voltage under a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. Temps stayed at or below 56c under full load. This is your best option for a budget CPU cooler that will be safe at these speeds.

    4.5 required a little voltage bump for my particular chip, but some can also do 4.5 on stock voltage. YMMV.

    If you want to do 4.5GHz or higher I recommend a big air cooler or closed loop liquid cooler.
