I used to overclock my 2400+ just at 2.2 ghz with 37c. But now when I run it at 2.0 ghz the temps are at 43, so i can't overclock. What happened? Is it just cause it's summer? Should I open my window? Dust? :bang head :bang head

I have 2x80mm 1x120mm intakes, then 2x80mm exhaust with my PSU having 2 intakes and 1 exhaust. I am using the stock heatsink that came with the processor, but as i said before "I used to overclock my 2400+ just at 2.2 ghz with 37c."

Should I turn to watercooling?

You can expect a raise in temps during this hot part of the year, it's normal
I wouldn't worry about it, even 43C isn't a bad temp (providing it's load)
