What should I expect from an FX-8350 OC?

I am currently waiting on my system which has a FX-8350 CPU with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO installed and I would just like to know if anyone has some estimations as to what clock speeds I can expect to reach with this setup.

Would, say a 4.4 - 4.5GHz OC be achievable for example?

I know the 212 isn't particulary great for a high OC but any information would be helpful!

If you guys need some more info on my system specs, they're listed on my profile :)


Thanks !

Should easily get 4.6

What motherboard!

ASUS M5A99FX-PRO-R2! I need to read more!

i had that EVO cooler and i made it to 4.5 with a very crappy motherboard, Yours is looking better!

Why Am I shouting!

Such excitement! 

Well, this makes me very happy and looking forward to getting some good overclocks, hopefully!

I'll be stoked with a 4.6Ghz OC!

I finally settled on 4.6 for my 8350, it was a decent enough bump without the downsides of pushing too far.

Your Evo 212 should be enough for 4.5, but it might be cutting it close.

Awesome, thanks!
