Hello everyone. I`m planning to buy the AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE, and overclock it to around 3.8 ghz. I have a average cooler for the entire computer. Would it be better to buy a CPU fan cooler, or one for the entire computer?? Thank you!

for oveclocking you will definitely need an aftermarket cpu cooler.
No, not necessarily, and especially not with a chip like this. I OCed my 965 to 3.9 with the stock cooler fine, never above the 50s. Do you mean that you don't have a case fan?
