  1. Hi cigan and welcome to Tom's forum.

    I don't recommend overclock your CPU if you get that temps. The overclock rise your voltage and temps, more if your are running the stock cooler.

    50 degree celsius on stock cooler, looks like it's ruined.
    get a new cooler, from zalman (pretty much recommended) and then overclock.

    The best way to overclock a cpu is to use BIOS, make sure your psu can handle it bcoz sometimes even a difference of 1 watt can kill hardware.
