As you may have noticed from the title, I own a Xeon X5650 and I want to cool it using a Cooler Master V8. Would I be able to OC the Xeon to 4 GHz using that cooler? No need to teach me how to OC, I can do that myself.
How about a Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme?

MoBo: GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R

Both coolers should be enough for 4 GHz.

But are you sure? As the OC on this CPU is made by rasing the BCLK, and not the multiplier. And which one is better? I have managed to find them for similar prices.

Motherboards BCLK max may limit but that limit is not much depending on CPU cooler's cooling power. Cooling wise, 4 GHz is not too hard to achieve.

 

Didn't find direct comparison between those two so hard to say which one is better.

Well I have a cheap Zalman cooler for it, don't know the name. I have tried to OC it to 4 GHz, but after a stability test in AIDA, it was throtlling up to 52%.

In that case, those two coolers and even many cheaper ones should be enough.

Friend, by throttling I mean reducing its power by 52% and overheating.

Exactly so better cooler should keep it cooler so it won't throttle.

But that doesn't mean a lot of cheap coolers can get it to 4 GHz. It actually means you need beefy cooling system. I'll see how these 2 coolers rank in comparation with a Noctua NH-D14 (or 15?).

Those are quite expensive, I expect that even 30-40$ range coolers are enough.
