just up the bclk(base clock) to 170 so 170*20=3400 also you did not mention your cpu cooler
the stock cooler can hold 3.2-3.5ghz easy but you might think for going aftermarket heatsinks.

If you're trying 3.2Ghz or little more, chances are that you can do it with no Vcore voltage changes. Your system should run cooler, then.
Anyway, go for an aftermarket heatsink. Intel's suck event at stock.

yeah, and if you intend to overclock it even more, and use the full power of your system. is recommended to get a good PSU 800~+ . Not saying that yours is bad, im just stating...

@jeyd02: thanks for the advice, but if i only want to oc it to 3.4 or 3.5, 650 is enough yea?

p.s. maybe 3.33ghz
