    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.

  3. will try to get one if insurance ever pays me for the last cooler that got busted in the post.was looking at that cooler a while ago since it looks like a BEAST
  4. Since do overclock automatically voids warrantyan you can check amd website, also I suggest you must upgrade good psu
  5. yea.bin leaving my peripherals unplugged because my psu is so bad..when i get some money i will be getting an antec>700w hopefully.its out of warrenty the cpu second hand and built the rest of the pc around it with new parts
