Im wondering if there is a heatsink for 50 dollars or below that can overclock my 1090t to 4.2ghz at 55c prime95 large fft. I cannot go above my budget so are there any in the market that can do this? I know each chip is different so 4.2 ghz is not always possible but is there one that can generally do this,
