hey guys, im planing on overclocking my gaming rig, i have an FX 8320 and its currently running at 3.75GHz on a stock cooler, i gave it a minor OC just for the hell of it.

I really want to push this CPU and hopefully get into the 4Ghz Range, some people have been telling me that this chip OC's just as well as the 8350, if that's true, getting it up to around 4.5GHz would be great.

But i have a really low budget for my CPU Fan of £25, i was wondering what would be the best Cooler to get for the job, and if it would be suitable for a high OC on the FX 8320

my first choice was the Cooler Master
Hyper 212 EVO but i have no idea what is good or not so i though you guys could help me out? thanks :)

Hyper 212, can't go wrong with the amount of cooling you get for the money.
Visit , AMD OC forums here on Tom's.
4.5 might be a leetle ambitious, but possible. In the winter. With about 6 case fans. If you squint your eyes just right.

Good luck!
