I'm not looking for a huge overclock, but if I kept it at stock voltages, would overclocking give a big jump in temps, or would the stock cooler be able to handle it? I've heard stories of people overclocking the 631 to 4.3 Ghz on stock voltages, but I'm just looking for maybe 3.4Ghz from the base clock of 2.6 Ghz. I have never overclocked in my life, since my current build has an i5-9400F so yeah. Would be pairing the 631 with an R9 280X I found used. I don't expect this to be an amazing 1440p gaming machine, or even really a great 1080p gaming machine. Just looking for 1080p, 60FPS, while at "playable" graphics. The motherboard is an ASRock A55-HVS, which isn't exactly an overclocking king, but should handle a couple hundred Mhz, right?

Any info would be appreciated, thanks
