    You aren't supposed to ask about overclocking in this forum. We have a forum dedicated to such things, "Cooling and Modding".


    More to the topic at hand, you need to supply us with some information:

    1) What motherboard make, model and BIOS revision do you have?

    2) What other components, most importantly what type and speed of RAM, do you have?

    also, how much you can push your chip depends on your particular chip as well, as each individual chip has very minute imperfections in it, so another 2800+ may be pushed higher than yours in the exact same environment.

    So basically asking "how much can I OC" will only get you a rough estimate, only through OCing it yourself will you find the answer.
