Advice for OC on fx8350

Hi all,
I am looking for some advice on OC'ing my 8350 and if you think its even a good idea on my mobo. I did OC my phenom 965BE to 3.8 with just the auto OCer in the BIOS (nothing else was stable). My case gets excellent airflow and I'm using a Hyper 212 evo, plus living in a very cold environment i have not seen my temps go over 38C. So I was looking to get a good stable OC as high as is recommended to be safe and the best process for accomplishing this. Thanks for any help

  1. I'll advise you not to overclock 8350 not bcoz its a 8 core processor but the benchmarks lower a bit when its overclocked. Its benchmarks are better without OC so leave it as it is
