Okay so i have a AMD phenom II X6 1055T 2.8 GHz and i would like to overlock it to about 3.5GHz what fan should i get to keep it cool enough and safe?

I have been recommended the cool master 212+/Evo. Any thoughts/ suggestions?

I am using a 212+ on my 1045t that runs at 3.4 Ghz. Max temp under 2hrs of prime95 is ~55C

I had to remove the MB to install the backplate, but some cases have a big-enough cut-out that you can install the plate while the MB is still installed.

You can install a TX3 without removing the MB, but your temps would be 2-3 degrees higher than a 212.
