Umm ok thats the point, Ive ran 3.9 off stock for 2 years
so what your saying is that intel makes superior CPUs
Shipped with a trash Hsf ?
So im a troll if i say my 70$ Cpu runs great OVERCLOCKED on the stock fan?
No, I believe he saying youre a troll for spouting disinformation based on your (limited) experience with one single chip. Yes, it is possible to moderately overclock most recent CPU's on their stock cooler, however NO the maximum results will not be any similar between an aftermarket cooler and the stock ones. Becasue YOU don't have the need for it, because your limitations are not temperature based doesn't mean it is the case for others, as it is one of the most limiting factors for overclock in general and for most people here, and if you are not able to understand something like that, then yes i'd agree with giving you the distinction of "troll".
