Hi, I overclocked my fx-8350 from 4 ghz to 4,3. I am using a standard heatsink which came with the cpu. Is good enough or will it eventually damage my cpu?

The key here will be to monitor your temps. 4.3 shouldn't be so bad that I would expect issues but when all cores are running, you may find yourself at the thermal threshold rather quickly. I'm just going to say watch the temps!
