My answer is not quite as short: How would they know?

You can buy the same CPU boxed or OEM. OEM has no cooler and they expect you to add one. Keeping you CPU cool is not only expected but necessary. Get an aftermarket cooler. It will not void your waranty.

I have a Cooler Master Hyper212+ that is working pretty well. Have my 1055t OC'd to 3.7 GHz with temps in the mid 40's. Not bad for $30.

Yes. Runs prime95 for over an hour at 3.5GHz with max temp of 40c.

Have got stable IBT at 3.85GHz (only 5 passes) and temp got up to 49c. Had to increase vcore to 1.425 to get there. Still a work in progress!

Only so many hours in the day, you know! I want to be around to keep an eye on it, and it was just too nice outside today. Maybe tomorrow...

if you can afford it, go for a better cooler... venomous X, megahalems are excellent coolers but with two fans they would touch circa $80... for that price you are better off with silver arrow... my in-between price suggestion is Spire Thermax Eclipse II for $55...

IMHO i dont think hyper 212+ can handle the 1090t at 4Ghz... however i like the cooler a lot for i5's, i7 8XX series and quad core AMD's... but i'm seeing mixed reviews for real hot cpu's...

I have the 1055t oc'd to 3.5 (4.1 on turbo) and with the Hyper 212+ my CPU never went above 43C on Prime 95 over 4 hours. Megahelms makes a great cooler but you pay more. If you are gonna spend $80, look for the H50 on sale.

That is funny how you are worried about warranty with the cooler but you didn't ask about warranty if overclocked. :) 

You can try to ignore it or just lie about how your CPU got damage... your choice.

They will have not idea what cooler you use. Just don't throw the stock one away. You will have no issues.

I have seen 4.0 reached on aftermarket air cooler. Check out these posts for info.

Not sure what you are asking. Sorry.

I bumped my FSB on the 1055T to 250 with a multi of x14 and left all my voltages at stock. Stable at 3.5. Since I left Turbo Core on, I get 4.1 on three cores when boosted.

I have run LinX for over two hours and Prime 95 for over four hours with the Hyper 212+ and never saw the temps rise above 43C during those. With the stock cooler, I was hitting 55C. Now the Phenom II's can get a little touchy at temps above 50C (I have heard but did not experience myself) so I changed my cooler. In games I never come close to those temps.

With the 1090TBE- All you will have to do initially is bump your multiplier for great overclock. I have seen x18-x21 in some.

I just read the manual that came with my 1090T. In the "Read this First".
#2 "Use only the heatsink/fan provided. Use of any other heatsink/fan will void the warranty" . Not maybe, or can or might but WILL. :pfff:

That is the standard warranty on their CPU's, if you read my quoted post above - last sentence. However, some CPUs didn't came with heatsink and fan but those are meant for manufacturerd like Dell, Compaq, IBM and such. So if you're not one of those manufacturing campany, your warranty will also be VOID. You can agrue with them and they might listen but... Also, when they said "improper testing" that includes overclocking.
