Hey all. I just need some quick advice for my overclock. I want to overclock the following system to just 4.2Ghz. Should it be no problem?

CPU: AMD FX-4100
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
RAM: 2 Sticks Corsair 4GB DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (8GB Total)
PSU: 500W Corsair CX500 V2 80 Plus
Cooling: 1 Case Fan + 1 Spot Cool for VRMs + 1 Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan for CPU
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7770

Should the VRMs be ok with just that fan or should I get some cheap copper heatsinks as well?

Socket is rated at 140w

And your 4100 is a 95w TDP at stock settings.

Sounds like you have some headroom to play with.

Just keep the VRM's cool.
