have a GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 4.1) link http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...

and i was wondering if my motherboard is fine with my setup in which i gave my cpu and gpu a 20% overclock.

cpu: FX-8350 @4.4ghz, max voltage 1.380v, max temp-49c

gpu: msi 660ti power edition OC, core clock 1202mhz, memory clock 3504mhz, max temp-70c

650w+80w psu

That's not the mobo you want for a chip like that. I used one in a FX-6300 based HTPC I used for a while. I could overclock but the power delivery is poor and VRMs/MOFSETS are uncooled. My CPU frequency would throttle with any overclock I tried. If you want to push that chip I would highly recommend something with at least 8+2 Phase with a heatsink.

Well that's the problem, good motherboards don't come cheap!

This is the cheapest I would recommend.
