  1. Yeah, if you overclock it high enough you'll get a significant noticeable increase of performance.

  2. Anything extra you can get out of a FX-4350 will be worth it.
    What is your motherboard make/model?
    You need a better than average one if you will OC.
    Also, you will need better than the stock cooler.

    Hyper212 is OK.
    Your motherboard is of poor quality.
    You may be limited in what you can do:

    Do what you can, but I would not put any more money into that platform unless it can be carried forward to a new build. Graphics, ssd, case would be OK. Ram, cpu, mobo I would not.

  6. Keep your temperatures under control and you are likely OK.

    I doubt you can go that high.
    It depends on the quality of your chip.
    Those with good chips claim 5.0, those with dogs are silent.

    So 5 is way too much or it should be just fine ?

  8. All chips are different.
    I really doubt that you can go that high even with one of the best binned FX-4350 chips.
    OC a bit and stress test.
    If successful, you can up it a notch.
    If you reach 60c, that is about your limit.
