Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

Of course that you can overclock that CPU, but I need know your rig's specs for a better advice as well as the cooler do you have.

Do you have experience in overclock?

A little , i managed to get my processor to ~2,98 Ghz but after i play a game for half an hour it gives me a BSOD and I'm pretty sure it's because of the RAM.
In BIOS i have a feature called D.O.T. control witch is an advanced overclocking tool but I'm afraid to use without someones advice.
My processor cooler is this: http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cpu/041/scktn3000_det...

Ok.

The first thing that your need know is that your CPU is locked multiplier, that means that you need use the FSB for overclock the CPU BUT changing that settings also change the RAM frequency, NB frequency and HT frequency.

In this case, your BSoD could be because your RAM don't support the frequency that you put on it or by temps. I can't see a cooler in your specs, so, What cooler are you using?
