I am going to overclock my cpu, but i'm in the need of a CPU cooler that would be good for this. Thinking about OC:ing it to something from 4.2GHz to 4.5GHz.

More specifically what i am looking for:
  • Affordable
  • Does not have to look super cool with 1000 LED:s on it
  • I guess it can be pretty big, since i have a lot of room inside my case
  • Well, it has to be able to keep the CPU stable at heavy load when overclocked.

Also, i am new to overclocking so ANY tips are appreciated.
Tell me things i should be careful of, remember to do, absolutely not do.

If people have past experience in overclocking with a similar build, please share!

CPU: Intel i2500k @ stock speed(3.7GHz)
GPU: Asus Radeon DirectCU II
RAM: Kingston 2x4gb 1333hz DDR3
Motherboard: Asus P8P67EVO
CPU Cooler: Stock
PSU: Corsair HX750W
Case: Corsair 600T(black)
