"Safe" Overclock Settings for my AMD Phenom II 1100T & 8GB Ripjaws

Hey all, I have a lot of experience with building riggs, but none what so ever when it comes to overclocking them. Currently I am running a Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 Motherboard, HexaCore AMD Phenom II X6 Black Edition 1100T, (4) 2x2 G Skill F3-10666CL7-2GBRH for memory. Of course with any OC effort there is a chance for damaging components, thats why I pretty much just wanna tune my system and crank it up just a little bit to be as safe as possible. Current clocks are as follows:

More about safe overclock settings phenom 1100t ripjaws
  1. just watch the temps in speedfan. try to stay under 60-65C, just use the cpu mutiplier, and raise the cpu voltage when needed
    (edited by self :P)
  2. however increase voltage or tweak anything keep stabe and cool temperature below 60C ... it will very very safe :D
