There's no given frequency. You might get up to 3 GHz, or be stuck at 2.2Ghz. It's just trial and run.

As's all about your configuration. Depending on your RAM and BIOS and many other factors you may be able to push it a lot further. It's also what you are comfortable with. I have my 3200+ Venice at 2500Mhz and don't really want to push it farther...although I'm sure I could...I figure I got 20% more performance out of it. Some people however have them at like 2.8. I would also recommend viewing the overclocking database at DFI Street. It proves helpful in seeing what others have done with their machines.

I am running my 3200 venice at 2.4 ghz. Thats a 400 mhz overclock and the difference in temperature settings is like a few degrees. I could probably go to 2.5 ghz with confidence. Just make sure you watch your temperatures when overclocking and you will be fine.

I was able to get my 3000 stable at almost 3GHz. Every chip is different.
