They only use a pretty slim single fan radiator so they won't be able to handle a lot of overclocking. I would suggest building your own loop with better parts if you want to get more out of it.

not in my alien! :)

i have custom build pc too, but i wanna leave my alien as it is, so i ll just run the cpu at stock speed !

the only change i could make is buy a corsair H90i !!!

tnx for the advice man!

Yeah that's cool. I made a small custom loop in my old ALX. Came out pretty nice but if you've already got a custom pc I guess there's no need to.
