Hi, I bought an AMD Phenom II x4 925 some time ago, and now I wanna try to overclock it, cause I reckon it could be an interesting experience.

I have read a lot of guides, but what I need is some concrete information based on my specific rig and how best to carry on.
I don't want to OC it excessively, only so much as can be handled by a cheap heatsink (Xigmatek Gaia 1283 caught my attention after reading a review on tomshardware). Maybe 3,2 - 3,4 GHz seems just fine. Stock is 2,8 GHz.

Downloaded CPU-Z, so I'll just go ahead and post some screens with the numbers:






I usually forget some critical piece of information, so please remind me if there's some information you need which isn't here

Thanks in advance!

Well it's not at 3,4 since it hasn't yet been overclocked. I'm a bit insecure jumping into this without a few wise words from experienced overclockers, hence this post.
