AMD Fx-8320 Overclocking

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?

Coolermaster EVO 212 is generally regarded as excellent performance / cost.

The board isn't very good for overclocking due to its poor power and thermal design.

What should I look at for replacing the mobo?
