Default Recommended OC temps?

I just overclocked my amd 64 3000+ to a 2.2 ghz and am running at only 35 C still. Should I overclock more, or is that temp alittle high..? Right now I have a venus 12 heatsink/fan combo on there, and I have 1 case fan sucking in on the side, and 1 fan blowing out in the back.

I've never overclocked before, and from just doing a quick benchmark with sisoft sandra, I realized how much preformance I gained with just that little 200 mhz. So I am kind of new, and not aware of the drawbacks that can occur or if that 35C is fine, and if I should overclock alittle more?

Since you're running an AMD, you wouldn't need to worry unless you're running @ 60C and above. The chips can handle more heat unlike intel. 35C is actually an awsome temp for overclocking. I'm not sure if the 64 bit chips can't handle as much heat, but I would think they're almost the same as the others. If you want to overclock more, go for it! I'd push that chip till it can't handle anymore hehe
