Is the Asus M5A88 mb OK for over clocking FX 8120 ?

Hello,
Is the Asus M5A88 mb OK for over clocking FX 8120? I am on a budget and cannot afford Intel so wanted to know if this was a good combo?
Thanks

  1. i have the same motherboard, my phenom hits a wall at 4GHz but that could just be the phenom line... or my power supply (that died from a 2hr prime test :P)

    i would say go for it
  2. For a few more $, you can get the Asrock 970 extreme 4 which has better features.

    i second that, FX is SUPPOSED to work better with newer chipsets
  4. Get the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX , that's what i paired my FX8120 with.You will need a different cooling solution if you want to OC it,the stock heatsink and fan are useless.
