There is a good chance you won't even notice a temp difference at 375/1100. I would just give it a shot and run rivatuner and play a game for a while. Check you load temps and see if they're OK.

You will know you OC'd too far if you get artifacts or other instabilities.

Try ocing the cpu. I'm pretty sure the premier can hit 240, but check it out. First time i've seen someone with the premier.

i want to OC the video card, cause when i run BF 2 on its very highest setting's it shows a little lag and i am interested to see if OCing it a bit will settle out the lag.
