Well, you're gonna want to get that AMD Cool and Quiet off first, its downclokcing your CPU from 2.7ghz to 1ghz. The memory seems weird, 3gb at 333Mhz, ddr2? That sounds like a laptop. Cool N Quiet needs disabled, it'll screw up the OC, you need to bump vcore up to 1.4v at least to start, to give the CPU decent headroom for OC, then just tap the multiplier up the +0.5x, that'll increase the CPU freq. from 2.7 to 2.8. You original multi should be 13.5x... 14 will be 2.8ghz, 14.5 = 2.9, and 15 will be 3ghz.

If you got good aftermarket cooling, You might want to just bump to 1.45vcore, and go for 15x multi for 3ghz from the start. IDK your complete setup tho...
