Default Overclocking FX-8320. Any tips?

I've done a good amount of overclocking on Intel chips (core 2 duo, Nehalem, Sandy Bridge).

Recently just bought my first AMD chip, the FX-8320. Is there any specific tips related to overclocking on the AMD platform, or is it relatively the same as intel?

In general no, the FX line has unlocked multiplier, and then you can play with FSB value. From what I have heard however the components most at risk will be your mobo's VRM section, make sure it is well cooled, meaning to have good heatsink pack on the VRMs and a good airflow on them.
