If your that good, just find out yourself. Honestly, not trying to be an *** or anything, but each chip is different, so start playing with it and you'll find your max way better than anyone here can tell you.

Well I think I'll do it by 100mhz increments every few days, just to be safe.

I wouldn't go very far with stock cooling though...get a Zalman cooler or something THEN start OC'ing it...you should have recorded your week and stepping that's written on the CPU though, so then I coulda lead you to xtremesystem were you could compare your CPU to others.
hey nubius what are good steppings? and which numbers are the ones that dictate the week and which the grade? just an example would be great.

anyway on the topic i think that 2.4-5ghz should be doable on a venice unless u got a dud core

You should be able to hit 2.6 on a 3200+ but you have a 3000+. Im thiking maybe 2.4 or 2.5? In theory of course.
