Hi, I would like to overclock my whole system and i will need some help cause i have never overclocked anything before. i know how to OC but i dont know the limits i can go to without damaging my pc.

My Specs:

GPU: MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2gb Gaming
12gb RAM
2tb HDD
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-M LX3
And im using windows 10


My CPU's and motherboard's temperature goes between 50 and 70 C so i could also use some help with cooling

  1. Overclocking the GFX card":

    With AfterBurner we applied:

    GPU clock +175 MHz
    Power limiter 108%
    Mem clock +450 MHz
    Voltage +100 Mv



    As for the CPU, we haven't been asked to do a AMD based build in about 9 years so have no recent experience.

    This is what folks I have met have used for Asus boards

  2. If that is the regular 8320 and not the 8320E then you cant overclock it anyways, you shouldnt even be using the CPU in the first place.

    Your motherboard only supports 95w tdp so if you have a 125w tdp CPU in there then it is being underpowered so you cant even reach stock level performance, let alone overclock it.

    If you do have the E version then I still dont recommend overclocking as that 760 chipset board does not have quality VRMs (or good cooling for the VRMs) to overclock. Thus it will never be very stable and you sill just end up having a lot of reboots and wear on your board/cpu.
