Before anyone helps you, I have a few questions:

 

  • What's the exact brand and model of your power supply? This isn't a concern of your PSU's output capacity, but rather its quality.
  • What do you have for CPU cooling?
  • What do you have for a case?
  • What do you have for case fans?
  • Where do you keep your computer? I'm hoping it's not in a desk hole.

 

You otherwise have a good CPU and it's even the E0 revision of the E8400 which is a very good thing. The P5Q isn't that bad either. Sure, there are better P45 motherboards, but this one is decent enough for some overclocking. I think if your PSU is of good quality and if you have good enough cooling and case airflow, then you might even be able to reach 4.0 GHz. It's never a guarantee, but I think if all of those criteria are met, then it would be feasible.

It's a computer!
