Fx-8320 w/Hyper 212x with Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P Overclocking


Just wondering if the 970 chipset will allow me to push an overclock of 4.5ish ghz. Would the Hyper 212x cool it?

    The chipset is no problem... It's the VRMs of that motherboard that are the problem. They will overheat way before your processor does. And that cooler won't help.

    That will give you one fine shot at it.

    If you feel the PWM is an issue, point a small fan directly at it.
