i have a amd fx 8320 with the biostar ta970 motherboard i have overclocked from 3.5 to 4.0 and ran plenty of stress tests and 4.0 is the best i can go without over heating. now im wondering what would be the best cooler to use to boost to about 4.4ish right now im running the stock cooler thanks for the help

A nice inexpensive CPU cooler is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. It usually runs around $30.

With that motherboard I wouldn't try anything hard.. 4.4 might be ok.. The Hyper 212 EVO is good for what your doing.

It's hard to say, each CPU will have different results. Even if same make and model.
