Do you know what core of CPU you are using? In case you didnt know, some cores will OC better than other ones. For example, if you have a 3200 with a Venice core, it will OC better than a Winchester core.

I would have a look at the OCing basics thread at the top of this section, too. It gives a bunch of nice info if you are just starting to OC.

Weird, that site doesnt list the core for your CPU at all. I would go to www.cpuid.com and get CPU-Z. This utility will tell you what core of CPU you are using, among other things.
