You can raise the Northbridge, but if you raise it too high you may need to fudge with the ram settings and NB voltage.

An easier way, which is almost as fast, is just raise the multiplier. Keep raising it and testing for stability. If its unstable and not as fast as you want it yet, increase the voltage in small increments. I am not sure on the max voltage of the chip or max temp. give me a few and I will see if I can find it.

I have one in my second computer and i got it up to 3ghz just by increasing the multiplier, it didn't really need a voltage bump. That's as much as I can tell you since I didn't really feel like overclocking the NB on that one (I'm too lazy)

Looks like 1.30 voltage is max on that chip. Max temp is 61*C

1.3V is the stock voltage on that CPU, and can be raised higher. OP Don't expect to get much of a boost with the old Phenoms. Max you can get on it would be 3.2-3.4 GHz.
Just raise the multiplier incrementally until you get instability. Then raise the voltage to regain stability. Rinse and repeat.

That is the reason I waited a few months to build my sigrig. I didn't want to deal with the Phenom I.
