I just OC'd my AMD 940 to 3.5 ghz and I'm currently running the stock cooling system on it. My temps at max load for 30 minutes get up to 54c. Wondering what I should upgrade to for a CPU cooler, I am looking to eventually run it up to 3.7 but want to make sure im running cool enough before I do so.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thank you

EDIT: Staying at 3.5ghz however still looking to upgrade my CPU cooler never bad to air on the side of saftey
