Solved OC Fx6300 or buy an FX8320? Tags: Cooling CPUs Last response: December 19, 2013 12:21 AM in CPUs Share T4Gx December 19, 2013 12:12:32 AM If I oc I'd need to buy a brand new mobo and cpu cooler and possibly a new case so it will pretty much cost as much as a 8320. Would it be better to just go ahead and upgrade the cpu then OC in a year or two when need be? Rig is purely for gaming experiencing bottleneck with an oc'ed 280x on some games.
