ajfis3

I've been tinkering around with parts on pcpartpicker and figured I needed a really cheap quad core but because it was so cheapbthe clock speed was very low what cooler should I get to overclock it?

Corsair H100i, legendary cooler

 

EDIT: If you are on a budget, then a Hyper 212 EVO is a good cooler for its relatively low price

Leave a like if you breathed oxygen today

as JebKerman says it all depends on the chip, it might not even be an unlocked chip that will let you overclock (intel in particular) if it is an intel chip you would need to have a K series chip ie 2600k or 3770k etc for you to be able to apply an overclock. Skylake processors with a bios update *can* allow you to overclock the skylake chips but it is very new and not many people have played with it so you should probably steer clear of that path for now
