I have picture of me stressing the cpu, including temperatures
EDIT: MAX TEMPERATURE IS 37 DEGREES!
as long as its still below 62C you should be fine with air. I'm trying to do something similiar as well, maybe we can help each other out. I have mine at 3.7 stock voltage stable. Right now im workin on raising my NB frequencies and CPU NB Voltage, once i get those stable, ill be raising my OC to 4.0.
ive tried 3.9 before on stock voltage, but i BSOD.
at 3.7 stock voltage my CPU temps are at 39-41C, Core temps are at 29C, and i am using a hyper 212+. The fan i have on it is an old Dell Optiplex cooling fan (pumps a lot of air, its at 35% power and its spinning at 1900RPM, its loud though but i dont mind) I have a lot of good airflow in my case so i know i can still push my CPU a bit more.
When you do get to 4.0 let me know what your settings are at, ill do the same. I wont lie, i am a little jealous of those running their 960's at 4.0+.
