[Air Cooling] i5-3570k

I overclocked my Processor to 4.6Ghz@1.34V with temps going upto 79C max while runnning prime95 stress test.

I want to know if i can go beyond this and how, whether i can go further by adding more fans?

    At that clock speed and voltage you are pretty much topping out that Hyper 212 Evo and pushing the limits of that CPU with just a budget air cooler, if you want to go any higher I recommend you look at custom water cooling at this point.

    Hahaaha, alrite, i will just keep it at 4 or 4.2 ghz for now. But the temps arent so high i still got an unstable 4.7Ghz@1.35V, Am i missing something?
