How Far can I relatively safely overclock an AMD FX-8320 CPU?
I took your guys advice & got this CPU while it was cheap xD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113285 I plan to overclock it once I get my new motherboard but just wondering how far should I go? I bought a good cooling fan recently for the CPU I currently have so hopefully that will help a lot with heat, its a Cooler Master Hyper N520 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103057.
My answer: Until it Crashes.. hahaha, No sorry it depends on your specs a pretty unstable parts like your using an low grade or low wattage psu. Also how often you overclock it. Those are some factors to check if your in to overclocking. Also the cooling a HYPER 212 Evo is my choice.

and dont forget your PSU as well!
