  1. I have never tried to OC on an H77 board but for 4.3, air would be fine as long as you have good air flow and have a good cooler. I would say at least a CM 212 Evo but the Noctua NH-D14 would be better.
  2. You cannot overclock on H77 boards... The chipset doesnt allow it...
  3. Gemini could handle such heat on 4.3gHz?

    Do you mean this cooler?

    If so, It doesn't look like it supports socket 1155 according to the details.
  5. Just to be clear though, it is not recommended to try to over clock on a h77 board. Please read this... take it for what it's worth.
