I have a fx 8320 running at 4.2ghz right now on 1.3v
I have a gigabyte ga 970a ud3p motherboard and a XFX core edition pro 650w
I have a gtx 770 and a hyper 212 evo.

I wanna know if I can push my overclock further.. Right now my temps around around 20-25 idle and around 50-low 50's load. I think the highest I have seem it get was around 54 when running prime95 for 12 hours.
All opinions appreciated!

the way I overclock is setting the multiplier I want and setting the voltage settings to auto and booting into windows and then shutting down and going back into the bios and setting the voltage lower and lower until its on the edge of instability and then see how hot it gets and the you do the steps again and again each time setting the multiplier higher until you think the temps are getting to high and you should be good.
