You can try, but do not expect much.
You need a very good motherboard to run a FX8350, let alone overclock it.
The problem is not so much the cpu cooler, but motherboard cooling.

One thing to try is to take the case cover off and direct a house fan at the motherboard.
See if that helps.

Ultimately, the FX line is obsolete as far as gaming is concerned.
$250 will buy you a modern replacement that iws twice as capable of gaming.

What are the CPU temps? This sounds like an overheating problem.

There are gobs and gobs of threads on the net about FX8320 overclocks. That's where I'd start. Every CPU is different (silicon lottery), so nobody can give you a "ragged edge OC" without being able to stress test your particular CPU.
in full load prime95 i have maximum 55-60c.(45min +)
