I'm curious, how hot are those chips? Let say if I overclock it at 4.2-4.5 Ghz?
4.2Ghz should be just fine with at least a CM 212+ or a self-contained water cooler (should keep the chip in the mid 40's while crunching). Going over that overclock tends to raise the heat and power draw significantly...
My 6100 and 6200 run in the mid 30's crunching at stock clocks with the Xig Gaia/Night Hawk coolers on them... the 8150 runs mid 40's at stock with an old Xig Dark Knight.
