Check out the guides on the AMD section, they're fantastic when it comes to over clocking.

As long as you're not over volting it you should be diddily fine.
I think 1.4 is the sweet spot, and any hire is pushing it I believe.

I will add you. And you should definitely try overclocking! Just watch the temps, and limit your voltage increases, and you should be safe!

Well increased a tiny bit from 200->215 which gives me 3.01ghz from 2.8 and running temps of 45c full load idling at 29-30. Not sure if there is much further i can go, i have not increased any voltages yet, still at stock. If i go any further past 215 pc refuses to boot and restart loop occurs.

450

450

Also just wondering when i go to Computer>System Properties Windows still shows my CPU @ 2.8ghz but CPU-Z Shows it @3.01....

First, you're gonna want to set a goal. I would personally recommend from 3.4Ghz to 3.6Ghz. First, increase your voltage ONE INCRAMENT AT A TIME. This will fix your BSOD & restart loop problem. Every time you restart your computer, run a stress test, and make sure your temps don't exceed 55 degrees. If they do exceed 55, just close the stress tester immediately. There is no need to shut the whole computer down (usually in a panic smile.gif). Since your processor is not a black edition, you're going to want to increase the processor clock (like you were doing before). Take it slow though, no need to jump large incraments. Once it becomes unstable, try increasing the voltage a little more to see if that fixes instability (DO NOT EXCEED 1.511 Volts). If the voltage did not fix it, then reduce the clock one incrament at a time until it becomes stable.

Hope this helps!

I would HIGHLY recommend the XSPC rasa 750 kits. Specifically the RS360, and the RX360. They are extremely low priced, yet they are amazing WC systems. I am a proud owner of the RS360!
