Wanting to Overclock a AMD FX-8320

What would be normal overclock speeds I'm not looking for extreme, my CPU cooler is a CM 212 EVO any help is appreciated, I am running stock speeds, and I was wondering if this motherboard is even worth it for overclocking and get another one.

Specs
Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center 64-bit
AMD FX-8320
8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Motherboard
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 (NVIDIA)

    That motherboard is not optimal for overclocking, especially hungry CPUs like the FX processors. I would suggest getting a better board before attempting to overclock, you could try the Giga GA-990FXA-UD3
