Doubt with phenom II x4 955 BE Tags: CPUs Cooling Computers Phenom Last response: May 29, 2011 1:19 AM in CPUs Share marcelbr May 21, 2011 11:55:40 PM 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!

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?

It sounds unreal for me. pelov May 22, 2011 11:25:30 AM you will almost certainly need a new CPU cooler. The Phenom II's chew through a lot of voltage when overclocked to those speeds. marcelbr May 29, 2011 1:19:14 AM Thank you guys, i bought the 955, with a cpu cooler, and a case cooler.
