Only you can tell us how far you can overclock you hardware. Seriously it varies so much depending on chip manufactures and such.

not only does it vary by cpu but it also varies on experience. if this is your first time overclocking then you can't expect to be brilliant at it first shot. to start with i would guess you could hit maybe 2.4ghz-2.5ghz, if you do some research you shouldn't have to much difficulty hitting that. when you get better skilled you should be able to get between 2.7-near 3.0ghz.
