Hey Rodney I was wondering about how much a person has to overclock their CPU before they need to install aftermarket coolers. If a person were to go from 2.8Ghz to 3Ghz or so, would that be enough to require better cooling/ventilation? How many Ghz of overclock (roughly) would a person have to do before the CPU requires better cooling?

Thanks alot!

A 200 MHz really won't require a CPU cooler upgrade.
