since i have an almost 1GZ overclock on stock cooling i really need to know the right temp on cpu to avoid damaging it.
You shouldn't go over 60c under max load, and to be really safe I would keep it under 55c on max load.
What CPU cooler you have depends on the design of your case and how it channels airflow. If your case has a good (120mm)intake in the front and good exhaust, the cooler I am using is good, so are most of the similar design coolers like the Scythe Ninja, and Infinity. If your case lacks good airflow, a Big Typhoon with a hole in the side panel cut for it is your best bet.....
