AMD fx-8320 overclocking to 4.5GHz

I am using a Amd fx-8320 CPU and after overclocking it to 4.5ghz th temperature rises after 10 minutes immediately. I want to overclock my system to get a good performance. I am having Windows 7 installed on my pc. I am also using a Antec K?hler H2O 620 for cooling purpose. Does anyone have any idea how to achieve this overclocking settings without the temperature rise? Thanks

You should do the overclocking really slow and easy. Just try to get a good stable overclock and it might take some time. You can also try switching to CPU Multiplier overclocking instead of FSB overclocking. Incase the memory that you have is basic and doesnt have hearspreaders then it will not work properly to being overclocked. You might should check the other things affected also and keep them close to stock.

What is the motherboard that you have? If you dont have a high end board then it could only handle upto 4.2ghz. Also if the power supply is not able to give the amount of power to the CPU then there could be some issues as well. If the processor is under load and draws more power, then with any power supply, then it could heat up and make up to the loss as well.

With the same Amd FX-8320 CPU I was able to overclock 4.5ghz easily without even changing any voltages but I was using liquid cooling so my temperatures didnt change as well. I dont know how to do this on air cooling. I get a temperature about 32-36 degree C and under load it goes to only 50 degree C approximately.
