Assuming the chip itself is capable, 4.5GHZ with the stock HSF is not unheard of. m 0 l Related resources Cpu fan am3+ ? - Forum AM3 CPU Cooling fan - Forum Am3+ cpu fan compatibility - Forum CPU AM3 Socket fan - Forum Socket AM3 CPU fan & heatsink compatible with socket AM3+? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

You're preaching to the converted, but its not really relevant to what the OP wanted to know. just for good measure, *smack*x2 m 0 l nekulturny a c 78 à CPUs August 5, 2012 10:59:53 PM LOL, hey give the Devil his dues. At least AMD got the CPU cooler right. The stock HSF that come with Phenom IIs are just absolutely terrible. m 0 l nekulturny a c 78 à CPUs August 5, 2012 11:01:57 PM Maybe it is? Do the FX CPUs run cooler? I couldn't imagine they would considering how much power they suck. But theres no way you're getting past 3.7GHZ on the stock Phenom II cooler. My *** was throttling on that cooler under load before I OC'd. m 0 l tentaclegrape August 5, 2012 11:17:40 PM uhhhhh..... So i guess I'll get the Hyper evo, ty guys. m 0 l tentaclegrape August 13, 2012 12:02:31 AM Best answer selected by tentaclegrape. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
