You should be able to hit 4-4.2 with a good aftermarket cpu cooler.

yea it depends on the specific cpu and cooler....not all cpu's are equal...some will oc better than others....but as geek said 4-4.2 is very reasonable...if you are in the market for a good cpu cooler for cheap this would be the one to get...

like I said not all cpu's are equal so these results are not guaranteed.
