i'd save up another $5ish for the 212+/Evo, it will be able to hit 4 easy if not more, and will run a fair bit cooler than the ones listed

Xigmatec out of those or the deepcool mv3002gx , i use it on an oc'd 8350 and a 1100t with no problems . Sugessted it to others and they got the same great results I like the deepcool because quiet 120mm fan .
And don't use the pe applied paste , get some other stuff , I use TIMTronics grey ice 4200 , easy to apply and clean , or PK1, i GET THE tim at FrozenCPU for 5.00 , shipping is cheaper than the 2 gallons of gas used to fgo shopping and find parking

I have one of these in a Gigabyte motherboard and it overclocked to 4.2ghz using the stock cooler.
I ran Prime95 on it for 14 hours without any faults and it never rose above 60*C.
I left the FSB at 200 and HT at 2000 and just upped the CPU multiplier.

60c is close to the max of 62c AMD lists . I would not be comfortable running @ 60c for a long time , but that's just me . . Better to spend 20.00 and run @44c to 50c , your cpu will last longer

i ran 3.8GHz and hit over 80C so i highly doubt you stayed under 60

Agree , not with a stock cooler , could not run all cores @100% stress testing with a stock cooler and keep under 64c at stock clocks
