I want to know how he could OC a Core i3 2100, maybe we will have a world first here at OCN.

Also even if the cooler was fanless we are talking about a 65W CPU, it (Cooler Master V6GT) could in theory cool it just fine. The max recommended temp for 2100 is 69 C according to Intel

SK3407 could you fill in your System specs? It would make things easier for us, right now idk if you have installed the V6GT or you want to buy it.... *confused*

"I think the problem is my CPU is getting heat so I am planning to buy V6GT[...]..ok got it.

Then yeah if the fan of the stock cooler doesn't spin the CPU will overheat. Even if the fan still spins it might overheat during extreme load if the cooler wasn't installed properly. Use some OCCT to stress the CPU and watch the temperature. Also do the same with the GPU and see if it overheats during stress.

My take is that either the CPU or GPU overheated and they clocked down to prevent damage or your fps drops due to the fact that your video card is weak sauce. An after market cooler is good only if your ambient temps are high and the stock cooler fan spins very fast creating noise. I know my stock fan sounds like a jet fighter when it gets to 5k-6k
