Get a better cpu cooler for my cpu to get higher oc?

Currently have a CM 212 Evo, highest stable oc is 4.37GHz. Managed to get up to 4.8GHz once, but that was like a really cold day, don't remember what the temp was. Anyway the system boots into the desktop and I had to do something so I just left it there for like a while. Came back and it's still on the desktop, so I fired up CineBench R15, to see how well it goes. Bsod and system crashes. Every other time I've tried it, it will never boot into desktop or just bsod during the spinning logo, but on that day it did. so will a better cpu cooler than my 212 evo, help me get the cpu stable at 4.8GHz or maybe even reach 5GHz?

Also is there a complete detail guide on how to oc for x99? Last time I've oc was on 775, so I basically missed out on a lot of oc stuffs. Tried to catch up on it, by reading oc guides here and there on the web, but they seem to just provide bits of info, instead of the whole picture. So any complete guide is greatly appreciated.

CPU is a Xeon E5 1650 v3 @ 3.5GHz, turbos to 3.8GHz

Doesn't sound like a heat problem. A 212 Evo is a pretty damn good cooler, anyway.

I speak the honest truth with a bit of snark mixed in. I'm sorry if it doesn't line up with your beliefs.

You could probabli find a seidon 120v for less than 50$.

 

And also they are getting pulled ofrf the shelves as we speak

Unless you are hitting high temperatures getting a better cooler won't help you hit a higher overclock, it is likely that you have already OCed the highest your chip can do.

Have it as push/pull, currently at stock clocks and idle temp is 30C

Nice, will check them out

So that's the max then... temps was around mid 70-80C

 

why?

If it can reach a higher clock, then why not. :D

Eh, that is sort of high but it wouldn't effect your OC ability.

Just remember that I was stress testing around 4.5-4.6GHz but it only last for 40 minutes, until cpu reaches 90C and system will cut off the power from destroying the cpu.

Well you never actually said what your temps were beyond your reply to me. If it is stable until it reaches the thermal limit then a better cooler will help you. The Noctua NH-D14 or the be quiet Dark Rock 3 would be a good upgrade, those coolers are usually almost or just as good as a lot of AIO watercoolers in most cases situations.

 

Edit - I just realised that might be confusing
