Hey people. im new to the forum. and i whant to overclock my processor. the only thing that is pushing me back its the cooling. i have the stock cooler. and i dont know what cooler should i got. i have tried to overclock it in the stock cooler but the max i can go its 3.7Ghz and thats the regular boost speed.

also i dont know if its normal but. my temps on my Processor are 53-56 on idle. and thats a little high. i built this PC a year ago and i love it. im gonna change the Video card tough.

My pc specs are:

Processor: AMD PHENOM II X6 1100T BLACK SERIES- 3.3-3.7 GHZ

Motherboard: ECS A785GM-AD3

Ram: 12GB Kingston

Video card: GTX 550Ti CYCLONE 2 MSI- 1GB GDDR5

so basicaly i whant to know how to overclock my processor safely with the stock cooler. while i get a good one. my goal its 4.0 GHZ thats all i whant. and the temps max 70. i hope thats posible. so can you please help me people?

Well, 62C is the max safe core temp with 55C being the max most people stick to. To prevent you from killing your cpu I highly recommend you purchase an aftermarket HSF and reset back to stock clocks/volts until the new one arrives. A 212+/evo would be about the minimum you'd want for cooling when overclocking a 1100T.
