Hi there, yes 4.2 ghz is a realistic goal with the Kuhler 620. I own the Kuhler 620 and was able to push my Phenom II X4 955 to 4ghz. Now take a look at this video on how to overclock the FX-6100 on an Asus board:

Edit: Also disable Cool N Quiet, C1E, C6 and Turbo mode. You should also set the power options to high performance as well.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will do just as good as the Kuhler 620, see if you can credit that Kuhler 620 or something.

I see, well let me know once the waiting game is over. It is around Christmas time so companies are rushing to do things and so they don't have all the time to do stuff. If this thread gets closed just send me a PM to continue this.
