IMO, 3.5ghz on your E4700 is too optimistic. I can only push my Q6600 to 3ghz stable, 3.2ghz and it won't pass prime95 with all 4 cores.

Not all CPU overclock the same, I suggest you read up on overclocking to get ideas on what it will and will not do.

You did not tell us what problems you are facing with your rig that prompt you to want to overclock/upgrade.

If you just want to try overclocking, get a good CPU cooler, and give overclocking a shot. I can't recommend any right now as I don't know the horizontal clearance of your case. If you are set on this, measure your clearance then we can help you choose a cooler. the cooler on my sig rig is good, but it's huge.

Hope this helps.

The reason i want to upgrade is because my motherboard fails a lot of times to run ram/graphic well and some times just block the pc i know is the motherboard because i checked the cpu, graphic, ram, psu and they work perfectly on another pc.
So if you can recommend something i would be nice. Like i said I'm using this pc to play few games when I'm in home and mostly i left it to convert videos
