overclocking to 2.8 is possible. Having it stable probably isn't

Run Intelburntest and see what it does

Pentium Dual-core E21x0s can routinely hit up to ~3GHz plus or minus, so it it's not impossible/irregular, but that's still good so good work nonetheless!

Where does it say 2.84GHz when you overclock to 3.3GHz?
