CPU-AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX

A 212 Evo in push/pull kept my 8350 @ 4.7Ghz cool. So yes it should.

honestly that seems quiet amazing! i have the same processor and cooler but i cant seem to push the processor past 3.8Ghz without the socket temp going above 65 in a stress test.

Adding a second fan to the EVO doesn't improve cooling results.
