Okay, here's the reply to your question...

I have the exact same mobo as you and your RAM is even better than mine, as well as the PSU... The CPU itself I'm not sure, I'm using Athlon II x4 635 as you can see on my rig and all I can tell is I've managed to OC it from 2913 to 3313 Ghz, about a 400 mhz increase...

Sadly, the mobo is not capable of overvolting to suit my CPU needs, as I can only set it to auto, for the max CPU volt can only take 1.35, so you can only hope for the greatest ballpark increase on the CPU for "Auto" voltages...

Now, here are my settings, and you can try this as well and check if it works for you... Remember, before doing any OC get a good CPU cooler first!!!

Current OC Settings:

CPU-NB Freq: 245
CPU Multiplier: x13.5
CPU-NB Freq: x8
FSB/Dram Ratio: 1:1.66
HT Link Speed: 800 Mhz

Now, use CPU-Z to check for the default RAM timings... Mine's 6-6-6-18-24, check your under the memory tab of CPU-Z and set it to those timings... Don't copy mine, as mine could be different from the timings of your RAM... Lastly, when setting the timings use DCT0 only...

Now, you might want to check the net for the MAX OC that your CPU can handle on Auto voltages so that you'll have some referrence when doing your own OC...
