How to set proper voltage on AMD FX-8320 overclock?

So I have a FX-8320 on a Gigabyte 970a-UD3 mobo.
Corsair h55 liquid cooling kit.
4x4gb sticks of Crucial Ballistix 1600MHz ram. (16gb)
MSI R7970-2pmd3gd5 GPU.
And a EVGA supernova NEX750w gold edition psu.

As of now, I have been using easy tune to oc @ 4.20 ghz, and it all seems fine.
So fine in fact, that I feel like I can oc further to perhaps 4.4-4.5ghz.
I oc'd to 4.2 and just left it like that because I am so comfortable with the way it runs...so I guess I can say its stable?
I have never changed any Bios settings, and I understand that there are a few settings that I should change within the bios to get a "cleaner" oc. (I.E. disable turbo, multiplier adjustment, voltage adjustment, and disabling cores?)
My idle temps are between 18-25c....sometimes touching 28c.
Under load I get between 35c-46c....this is why I feel I still have more head room to oc.

My question is: what are some of the volt settings my fellow 8320 users are using?
Who has a stable oc over 4.20 ghz?
And is my psu enough to push not only this cpu overclock, but also can it handle a gpu oc? and dare I say?....a ram oc?

Your PSU is fine. You should look up some overclocking guides, and use stress tests like Intel Burn Test to check your overclock's stability.

And not every chip is the same. Each will OC differently with different voltages even at the same clock speed.

Thanks for the speedy reply ihog.
I wanted to test the waters for others who are using the 8320 and have a stable oc above 4.2

I want to get an idea as to what voltages they are using and what BIOS settings are being modified.
I have read several oc guides around the net and came up with all sorts of answers...
I wanted to get a thread started of those who have the 8320 and can maybe give me, and anyone else in my situation an idea as to what the 8320 can do.
