Can you guys give some advice for a cpu cooler in that same price range of 20-35$ with which i can OC the Xeon x5675 to around 4.0 - 4.2Ghz without having to worry about the temps?

Would really help me a lot, i was eying the DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 as it is 10$ cheaper than the arctic i will return, i was thinking about buying a second fan with that money and add it to the heatsink to get a pull and push setup going. Would that be a good idea? Im happy to hear about any other suggestions!
I have a cooler mastrer evo 212 and it suits my needs perfectly. I also did install an inferior cooler caster hyper TX3 in my daughters PC and I can OC her L5639 to 3.9 Ghz with no effort. Also, nice temps.

Happens on my msi board now and then but I'll reload the OC profile, reboot and all is good again. I noticed it is more prone to this behavior if I disconnect it from the wall socket or turn off power supply (hard off ?!? don't know the expression) but it can be an issue of mine. Btw, it only happens when I near the oc limit on my system. In my case, usually if I go beyond 210 in bclk.

I haven't tinkered with my system for some time but yesterday I wanted to check my CPU load for some tasks and accidentally found that I'm running at stock 3.3GHz. So I booted into BIOS and when opening the overclocking settings portion I got the red message saying that the PC had boot failures so the settings were set back to default.

I was wondering what might cause boot failure while my overclock is stable? My PC is basically running 24/7 so I'm not sure when did it have any boot failures. Could a power cut or force shut down cause a boot failure?
If any other more specific info is needed let me know.
Might be nothing at all and caused by something like electricity failure.

If you're budget-limited, then the little Deepcool is decent - assuming your case airflow is good and your room temp is close to room temperature. Its fan is noisier than most, so adding an extra one will hurt noise levels more than help temps.

However, to get a better overclock with lower temps and noise, I'd spend a little more, but still under $50 for either:
Thermalright 120 SBM: https://www.amazon.com/Thermalright-...dp/B01CGMP9AK/
or
Scythe Mugen 5: https://www.amazon.com/Mugen-Rev-CPU...dp/B06ZYB8K77/

Or do what I did for one of my X58/5675 builds, pickup a used D14 for $25. ;-)

I used a cheap thermalright cooler for 10 years on this platform. I wired up a switch to run at 5v for everyday tasks like browsing, watching videos and then switch to 12v for more intensive tasks. I ran at 4.2GHz daily for a few years and 4.6-4.8GHz for benchmarks like timespy or Cinebench.

These chips don't get hot, well that is my experience with them. I gamed at 4.2GHz with the fan on a 5v supply always never any issue with heat and as I said it was a cheap cooler.

Anyway, I'll keep my eye on the situation. Maybe add a notch to RAM voltage since I think I'm running them at 1.5v while mildly overclocked.
PS. Just finished another Prime test (custom, all sizes, 90-95% RAM, 10 min each) that ran for around 25 hours without an issue. Temps were under 80C.
Regarding what, why, how and with what to test I just use the same that that I used on Sandry Bridge from a tutorial from this forum that was needed to get into Sandy Super stable club.

Sometimes it's worth the risk ,sometimes it isn't.


What the risk might be if the PC doesn’t crash and the temps are ok?
