Sadly i couldn't OC the CPU any further even with 1.5v.....

still... atleast it runs cool on a hot day now lol
Just my two cents but if I were you dude I would buy the Corsair H50, or H60, or H70. They are all really great liquid coolers. The H60 isn't out yet but should be very very soon. The H50 is 60 bucks which is the price or an air cooler and it is wayyyy better. I know you said you want to stick to air cooling, but there is absolutely no maintenance with the Corsair coolers. They are completely sealed units and they don't come apart. They never need refilled, absolutely stick on your CPU and forget about it. I put one on my buddies 1050T and I over clocked it to 4.1 Ghz. His room is probably slightly above a normal rooms temperature, around 76-78 in the winter, and in the summer it gets over 85 is his room easy. His CPU in the summer when its really hot in his room (feels like an oven) never exceeds 58 degrees Celsius.

I wish I would have bought and H50 or H70 but when I bought my liquid cooling system but they weren't for sale yet and weren't even advertised at all. I love my liquid cooling setup which is Koolance 360 CPU block, Feser Limited Edition Monsta Triple Rad, a Feser Double Rad, and a Swiftech MCP-655 Pump, and 5 Rexus NMB-MAT (Use to be called Panaflo) 120mm x 38mm fans. If you do the math it costed a **** load for that setup. My 1090T is 4.3Ghz and never exceeds 44 degrees Celsius at full load. Idle is around 27-33 Celsius. But my Obsidian 800D case is heavy as hell now with all that in there. I mean roughly 90 lbs. Seriously. It sucks ass anytime I have to or want to do something to my computer. I break my back moving the thing around all the time. I hate it. And I hate having to clean the liquid cooling system out. Dismantling the entire thing piece for piece and cleaning each component out is a *****. It literally takes all day to do and that is if I work non-stop. Of course I only do it once a year and sometimes 1 and half years but it still sucks. I wish I had a H70 in mine right now. But after I really get sick of the maintenance of my liquid cooling system (I am pretty sick of it already haha), then I will buy the H70. By that time they will have something even better

H50 or H70 is def the way to go man. Hassle free setup and maintenance free for ever and costs as much as a good air cooler would and its better. Also the CPU block is much smaller than a huge CPU heat sink and fan so your air flow in your case is vastly improved.
