Hi there,

Thats a good overclock but it depends on the components in your system if you want to overclock further.

Fill out your system specs on your User CP page and they'll show up below your posts. Thats a handy feature on these forums as other members can find out what any problems might be and it saves asking questions like;

What is you PSU, what speed is your RAM etc...

Welcome to Overclock.net

Well with some quick calculations i think you should be able to reach 3.8~ish.
Your RAM is (i assume) running on a 3:4 divider so if you want to get that running at it's normal speed (200mhz) you'll need to up the FSB to about 270.
It should be able to overclock a little bit as well so you'll prolly get a bit higher as well.
Other then that you should check if your voltage stays under 1.75 and your CPU temps are below 55°C (at load).

Nice overclock and good luck
