Overclocking a AMD Fx 8350

So in my build I'm looking to overclock the fx 8350 to around 4.6-4.8 I've heard getting it stable at 5ghz may be a struggle. Away I'm going with the Nzxt tempest 410 for the case. My cooling options are the nzxt x60, x40 or the corsair option depending on prices at the time. Anyway was wondering if anyone could tell my if the x40 would suffice for my overclock or would I need the x60?

Thanks

Where do you live? Is it summer where you live? What is the temperature in your house?

I live in Australia. So in winter it's like 2-8 Celsius at my place. 40 degrees would be the max in summer but my room stays cool

40 farenheit in the summer or celsius?

Celsius sorry. But my room is air conditioned so it sits at like 26 Celsius at max with the air conditioner on
