Cooler for OC'ing 3770k

What is the best cooler to OC the 3770k? I am looking for one under 60. How far can I push the clock with it?

  1. If your looking for under 60c not sure why 60c ? But anyway with a serious overclock than look elsewhere like an 8350 or a Sandy Bridge.

    You might be able to hit 4.5Ghz with a little over 60 on an H100 possibly
  2. No I meant $60.

    Hi Mate

    i have a 3770k under water with a 240mm rad and a 120mm rad a swifttech mcp 655 pump and a ek cpu block

    now i can tell you a 3770k runs HOT
    i can manage about 4.7 without spiking over 80c as long as my voltage is below 1.32v
    you should be able to run at 4.5ghz with ANY heatpipe cooler with 4 or more heatpipes anything more than that will depend on chip and other components
    on the stock cooler i can run at 4.5 as long as im not trying to run prime or 3dmark
    keep temps under 85c on full load and u will be fine no matter what cooler u decide on

    You ever think about de-lidding?
  5. My 3770K is OC to 4.43ghz. Idle temp is 29C. I'm using a Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler.
