    You might be able to get a bit more out of it but its already pretty high-clocked for an AMD chip anyway @ 2.7GHz. For best performance you could probably do with a beefier fan. As for max temp, it depends really on whether its a permanent overclock or just a temporary thing, but I'd avoid letting it get over 70 degrees (especially long term)
