And 8 core is more difficult to overclock than a 6 core, specially with a 4+1 motherboard. But, the D3P seems at least the best 4+1 motherboard currently available, so worst case scenario, you will stay comfortably at 4Ghz without having to worrry about everything exploding or beastly heat.
good 4.0 grz is the target so I match a 8350 and mirror the 8370.

I believe 4Ghz will be achieved safely with the D3P. Glad i helped saving you from Asrock. Asrock is fine if you take precautions like i do (buy always spares. I even bought 2 DE3 for my friend, exactly because i don't trust them). But when you only buy 1 motherboard and want to run something hot (because 4Ghz is hot), then you 'd bettter not buy cheap Asrock (or MSI). biggrin.gif

There is nothing to brag about for the cheap models. You need at least 970 Gaming to be "safe", which is 6+2 phase BTW, not 8+2 as reported below.


See here:

And here. The cheap 970 or 760 models from MSI, keep sporting the same brand and generation mosfets from this list :

Oh, anything special ill need to do to oc the 8300?

As long your PSU is capable enough to give you stable voltage to the mobo. The Hyper 212 is good for a decent OC.
