Like the title, can you oc it to the same specs as the 8350? I wear headphones so I don't have much of a problem with noise.

You should be able to get 4.0GHz simply by using the turbo function for the 8320. In most cases the stock heatsink fan is capable of cooling a turbo boosted CPU but I would suggest watching temps for a bit just to be sure.

What about without turbo? Like I can put some quality thermal grease on the stock heatsink and set the clock to 4.0/4.1 GHz?

Depending upon your settings, you may be able to do so more efficiently than turbo

Most likely just keep an eye on your temps.

Thanks guys, I'll be sure to do that. Time to throw quality thermal paste on the list!

If your buying thermal paste why not just get a better cooler?

Budget, buying basically an entire new system and if I can save an extra $20 with just getting some better thermal paste/grease than the crapola stock paste, I'd rather do that.
