FSB = 200

NB = x12 = 2.4GHZ

CPU = current multiplier, plus 1 = 10 minutes on Prime95. Stable, shutdown, add another multiplier, test for 10 minutes, repeat until crash.

Yip. Only once you've hit the ceiling using the current settings, you can start to fiddle with voltage etc. Trick with a stable overclock, only ever fiddle with a couple of (or one) things at a time!

so i first need to find the most stable cpu multiplier then if i have it, i can now change the voltage until stable?

Indeed. I've been using this method for years. Once you have a stable multiplier, you up the voltage, and then multiplier, again, one after the other and inbetween Prime95 test for at least 10 minutes. Be prepared for a few BSODS!

The only tip is make sure you have a decent power supply, overclocking on a crud one will quickly burn it out (been through 4 PSU's in 4 years myself :D ) but it's all in good fun.

Thanks for chosing me as your best answer :)

I just bought my first build from few different shops and am waiting to get the last components on monday to finally put em all together. I got myself 8320, Asus M5A99X Evo R2.0, G.Skill Ripjaws X (2X4GB) 1600 1.5v CL9 and Asus 280X DirectCU II GPU but realised right after my order that my power supply Seasonic S12II 520W will be pushed real hard right up to it's limits. However it's a solid PSU and I have seen reviews where it has pushed all the way up til 600W mantaining 82% efficiency. Xtreme outervision calculator gave me 490W minimum 540W recommended when overclocked to 4.5GHz. I am still a bit worried so I wanted to ask since you mentioned your experience with overclocking and PSU's if I'm in trouble with my Seasonic or not?

Thanks

Well just in case someone is reading this at later date. I have had no problems after overclocking R9 280X to 1100MHz and FX-8320 to 4.2GHz. Will try to push the 8320 to 4.7GHz
