Can i get my FX-8350 overclocked from 4.0 to 4.5 with the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo using this ( http:// ) motherboard?
EDIT: I put the wrong MOBO in the link. The right one is now in the link. It's the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0

If Around 4. To 4.2 then you can but i wouldnt suggest more than that however it also depends on your cpu

Before I upgraded to an h100i, I had my chip at 4.5 on that cooler with 1.41v. That was about the limit for the cooler. If you chip is as good as mine or better, you'll probably be fine, but if not, you will probably struggle.

Reaching a certain frequency depends on the chip and board, not cooler, every chip is different and reaches a certain frequency on a different voltage generating different amounts of heat. You can get to 4.5GHz on stock voltage or you may need 1.456V for it, former would be able to work fine on a CM 212 EVO and your board while the latter would need a better cooler and a board with an 8+2 power phase.

All in all, you just have to try and see for yourself, but I'm guessing you should have no problems as long as you don't exceed 60C on the CPU.

By the way, I wouldn't pump anything over 1.42V through a CPU on that board, 4+2 boards don't have the best CPU power delivery (at least it has a VRM heatsink to keep them cool) and you could damage the VRMs with high voltages. If you need to exceed 1.4V to reach 4.5GHz, put a fan to blow air over the VRM heatsink, that way you avoid damaging the VRMs or making the CPU throttle due to VRMs hitting their thermal ceiling.

Low 4's with the EVO , it's a budget cooler and that's a board with a 4+2 power phase design.

woops, wrong mobo:D  its the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 so it's a board with 6+2 power phase design :p

Thanks, for such an informative response!:)  Helped out alot. Im getting my new parts on friday, so we'll see then :p  btw, i put the wrong mobo in the link:p  the right one is now fixed in to the link. It's the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 so it has 6+2 power phase design:)
