The processor is an 8320(4.5ghz), voltage is at 1.384, it's temps at max is 58C, the cooler is an H75, and the maximum temperature I could go to is 62C for the socket. Should I attempt to overclock any further than 4.5ghz? I'll post a CPU-Z screenshot below of the cpu/mobo. I only touched the multiplier and voltage so I haven't touched any other settings.

Overclock as far as you can without overvolting until it overheats or loses stability. Then tune it back a little.

you are already in throttling, failure/potential fire hazard territory with an 8 core overclocked on that crappy motherboard.

That's not really a question other people can answer for you. You have to play around with it to see what you can get stable without over heating.

Personally I wouldn't up the voltage any more though, that's pretty hot already. Also keep an eye on north bridge and south bridge temperature. A lot of times they will be the first thing to over heat on cheap mother boards not the CPU, especially when you have a decent cooler on it.

Drugs are never the answer, unless the question is what isn't the answer.

They're both at around 47/48C. Seems fine to me unless motherboards shouldn't be that high. When I'm not gaming though the CPU runs at about 35C on average which is great. Thanks for the heads up though man, I would of never thought to of checked those temperatures. :)
