    What should I expect from this?

    Hi everyone I'm about to have a go at my first overclock (had my Barton 3200 to 2.4GHz), and am just a little puzzled. I have Mushkin DDR550 RAM which has been tested to 281MHz (the actual sticks, bought from Ramil after the test) on a P4. I have a CBBID 0502 Winchester with XP-90C & 58cfm 92mm fan, and a K8N Neo2 Platinum board, with a SilenX 450W PSU and all drives on dedicated channels, no RAID.

    My question is this: As the RAM has been verified at that speed, would I be unreasonable to hope for a 2800+MHz clock from this? I've had a good read up, and it seems that I'll need to pump up the voltages a bit, which I haven't done before - any tips/tricks? Obviously the proof is in the pudding, but as this is my first real OC I'm not sure of what to expect from it.
