Overclocking e7200

hi guys...
currently i've oc my e7200 to 3.0ghz have done till 3.5 without changing the voltage.
but now my ac isnt working due to some problem with it.. at 3.5ghz its temp is below 50 in full load after running prime95 for 30 min wen in ac with room temp 18..
my doubt is can i take it to above 4.0 ghz with or without over volting but using my same old stock intel cooler... but in the same condition i used for 3.5.. or should i get a new coooler for that??
ohh..i forgot.. i dnt use a cabinet :P

  1. At some point you're going to have to boost the voltage. That's the point where you ditch the stock cooler and fit something bigger or wetter.
  2. To reach 4.0 GHz (if you can), you will need to overvolt and that means you will need better than stock cooling.
  3. so wat would be a gud cooler for my cpu...since room temps are very low is there any need to go wid very big coolers....i mean a medium range cooler will be enough rite?
  4. guys...plz help me take a decision ,,
  5. Intel stock cooler with 4.0 GHz OC will create instability. Cabinet/case or bread-boarded system will not make much of a difference in lowering the CPU temps; at best, the reduction will be marginal because of heat transfer characteristics.

    Without an increase in voltage, the CPU will become unstable (4 GHz), and increasing the voltage will raise the temps - no question about this. No, the stock cooler will not be adequate for this type of OC. How much OC will the CPU with the stock cooler handle? Only experimentation will tell. My guess - not 4.0GHz

    Hope this answers your concerns

    how about this?? saw this while going to order...
    anyone knows how good it is?
  9. I don't know about this cooler but it looks awesome but expensive
  10. i noticed one thing that if i install bulky heatsinks it will come over my ram....is this a problem??
    my mobo is the one shown in my sig
  11. How often do you change your RAM around?

    Also, does the heatsink actually touch the RAM, or just hide it?
