CPU overclock recomendations

I have an AMD Athlon X4 860K, and I'm wondering about how much I can overclock it on the stock cooler.

Thanks for any help!

Don't do it.
Get a evo 212 or cheap cooler.

I haven't built it yet, so I'm not sure. Just getting some information, as I wanted to OC from 3.7 to 4 GHZ. I don't know if this is an outrageous hope, but hey. I'm an optimist. From what you're saying, I'm probably not gonna get that far. Any idea how far I could get?

this thing turbos up to 4ghz on its own! they have got something similiar to intel turbo boost so you dont need to oc.

I was able to OC my a10 6800k on stock from 4.1 to 4.4GHz (locking it on max turbo), but just get something like a 212 evo, it will get you alot farther ;)
