    I have an amd anthlon and i want to overclock it for games. I was just wondering if i need better cooling. I would think increasing 90 mhz on the cpu wouldnt make a thermal difference.
  4. how old of an athlon are we talking about here?

    Guessing on Itel processors(because they have a higher temp than amd processors) you may need a better cooling solution than just stock cooling.

  7. no, that 750 can do 3.0 on stock cooling even as poor as the Intel cooler is.
