    Long story short my motherboard sucks so if I use overdrive instead is this ok? We will be upgrading this system real soon so just trying to squeeze-out whatever free performance I can in the mean time.

    Fx 8320e @ 4ghz 1.2000V Stable so far
    Asus M5a780l usb 3.0
    Coolermaster 212 evo or similar (not sure)
    8gb 1600 Mhz crucial balastic 2x4 gb

    What is a semi-safe voltage for this thing?
    NB Vid-1.1875 do i mess with this or no?
    HT- 1.200 Do i use this setting ?

    The auto/overclock feature always crashes so I have to go manual. Thanks guys I am getting too old for this crap haha.

    You can but Overdrive is known to have stability issues. Truth be told, unless you're hitting 5ghz you won't see much of a performance difference.

    Not even close, I cannot pass 4ghz with this set-up so you might be right just leave it as is. Thank you for the reply.

    Hi there

    On earlier AMD platform some boards have poor VRM and this can affect how far you can push yours chip

    Download CPU-Z and check there yours vCore, you don't want go beyond 1.4v if you are looking for longevity or longer life from yours chip and keep temperatures under 65°C

    What I know and asked friend who have same chip 8320e, he can do 4.4GHz at 1.365v on his

    You can be limited by yours cooling, place extra fan close to VRM and get better cooler as well there,Noctua NH-D15S or NH-D14 or if you can find Thermalright coolers then I would suggest get them rather

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
