Solved AMD Fx-8320 Overclocking Tags: Overclocking Hardware AMD Last response: April 10, 2014 6:39 PM in Overclocking Share sdavidson208 April 10, 2014 5:00:40 PM I am relatively new to overclocking. I currently have a AMD FX-6100 overclocked at 4.0. I am thinking about upgrading to the AMD FX-8320. Other hardware: Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970a-D3 PSU: Rosewill Hive 750w Bronze RAM: 2x 8gb G.SKILL Ripjaw DDR3 1866 9-10-9-28 GPU: XFX Double D Radeon HD 7850 I know the 8320 is stock 3.5 but does anyone have a stable clock at 4.0 without messing with the voltage. Also, if I do this what is a good aftermarket cpu cooler that I can use that won't break the bank?
