Default Overclocking question

I'm currently overclocking a 2.5 ghz Northwood p4 and I've pushed it to 2.8 without any real temperature change.

My question is how much can you overclock this kind of cpu.

In the motherboard foxconn manual I have it says the max clock speed it can support is 2.8 ghz. I can't push it higher then can I?
