    Overclocking Help

    Im planning to slightly over clock a FX - 8350 4.0ghz to like 4.3ghz. its cooled by a Corsair H60 water cooler. Im not really worring about temps im more worried about my motherboard. I have the ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131795) Is it a smart idea to do a slight overclock with this motherboard? i don't want it to catch fire lol. if i cant Is there any good budget motherboards say like around $50-$60 that I can safely overclock on?.
    Im kinda new ish to overclocking and i wanna be real careful.

    I would advise against overclocking unless you have a valid reason why you need to. If it's just to make you look or feel better, don't.

    Ok, I have my reasons for overclocking. I want to be able to have that option, so in the future, when my editing demand higher CPU usage I can just clock that baby up. But thanks for the advice anyways.

    That motherboard is fine to OC on. You know that when you overclock, you should be going slowly higher and higher while measuring the temperature as you push the limits.
