just bought a new pc on a budget

955 be stock cooler c2 revision
asus m5a97 evo
4gb kingston khx1600c9d3/4g
400w generic psu

gone from 3.2 up to 3.58ghz after a little tweaking

first just did voltage and multi included a bus oc
ratings are:
210mhz bus
17x multi

the problem is that its peaking at 64 celcius and want to bring that down without buying a cooler if possible.would you say thats safe?and how could i improve on this oc.only done about a 30min stress test in prime95

everything use stock cooler and temp over 64C not safe and make decrease lifetime CPU too fast, you need after market cooler Hyper 212+ cheap and easily get 4Ghz with that CPU.
