:D  processor AMD fx 4100
6g Ram
Nvidia Geforce Gtx 550Ti (oc)

Note** Motherboard - ASUS m5a78lm x V2(cpu support 125w)

Thing is I am a complete noob with overclocking :??:  and i heard the FX-4100 is great for overclocking :sarcastic: 
I want overclock my system to 4.5 ghz . Got a aftermarket cooler ( Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO Cooler) Is it safe to overclock it to 4.5ghz on my cheap motherboard and a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO Cooler :o  :( 

Please Reply Asap.

you will want something like a hyper 612 or better. fx puts out a ton of heat and not so much performance.

with a tx3, you can try 4.2ghz. if temps go above 80c, it would be too hot for most

I have the same mobo/cpu combo as you and I safely overclock to 4.3Ghz, anything over that and I get the blue screen of death.
I am currently using a coolermaster hyper 101 for cooling.

I want to push for the the 5.0Ghz, I am using CPUID Pro to monitor the heat and I dont seem to be getting above 34C under load so will probably replace the motherboard for something more substantial as I dont think heat is an issue.

you have a problem. your temps cant be lower than your ambient, unless your ambient is under 7c
