The pc would restart only if the cpu temp hits Tjmax.........your tjmax is higher than 62c. Once again, no, it wont damage the cpu right away but to ensure the longevity of your hardware it is better to keep the temp levels as low as you can. Have listed cooling solutions already.

Thanks for all the responses. Does anyone know if this fan and heatsink will outperform the stock setup?

Arctic Cooling, Freezer XTREME Rev.2 CPU Cooler for Intel Socket 1366, 1156, Core i7, 775, for AMD Socket AM3, AM2+, AM2 and 939, up to 160watt

I can get this new from a friend for $50 and apparently RRP is $80.

Yeah man that will for sure out perform stock cooling, also looking into a Hyper212, or maybe a Corsair A50, or an H50....these will solve all your cooling problems for sure

Thanks all for the help, you've all been great. Got it running nicely at 4018mhz now and my new heatsink and fan will be here in an hour or 2 to keep it cooler. Also got a extra 200mm fan for the chassis and cooling for my RAM. Would there be much benefit in overclocking the RAM? I have 8gb of DDR3 1600mhz. Also, currently 2ghz northbridge, any benefit in touching that? Or will I need further cooling for it then? Or is my motherboard just gonna go bang??? There were a few comments earlier suggesting my mainboard might not be all that great...

Since you are using 1600MHz ram..... get your cpu-nb to at least 3 times the data rate to enjoy optimal performance. That means the minimum cpu-nb frequency should be at least (try more than) ........ 3 x 1600/2 = 2400MHz

Lets take the cpu-nb up to 2600MHz (you can try more later for slightly higher benchmark scores). For this you can leave the cpu-nb voltage to be either left auto-managed by the mobo or you can use 1.25-1.3V (it would depend upon your system).
Right now there is no need for OCing that ram, instead you can try and see if it will run at lower latency values. If the current values are 9-9-9, you can try and use 8-9-8. Of course there wont be any significant difference but you will gain just a lil more benchmark scores.

Increase the voltage, but don't use godly amounts of voltage (i.e. anything above 1.5V) until you get some mosfet cooling, especially with a tower cooler as that doesn't blow onto the mosfets. Being an 8+2 it's not particularly bad at all though.

To up the cpunb that much will I need extra cooling?

Actually 2500/2600mhz cpu-nb value is not that big a deal. In reality it is the optimal value for 1600mhz ram. Since cpu-nb is located in the processor, all you will need is a good cpu-cooler, nothing more is required. Anyway, to raise and keep the cpu speed at 4ghz you should have a top-end cpu cooler. A few choices are noctua nhd14, xigmatek thor's hammer, corsair h70 etc.

I have now put my new heatsink and fan on and my temperatures are lower than when I had the stock setup and no overclock. I left OCCT running and came back after 20 mins and my computer was booting up... Didn't see what happened but any ideas?

It could been the effect of an unstable oc or even heat, no way to tell. Do one thing, run prime95 blend while you are near the pc (browsing web or watching a film)......... try and see if any errors occur, also keep coretemp open to monitor the cpu-temp.
