My motherboard is H-RS880-uATX .
Well, the Athlon II x4 635 has good OC'ing ability. Just download speedfan and keep a close watch on the temp of the CPU. While OC'ing do it in very small incraments and test the temps under a stress condition (download stressing program)
You should invest in an aftermarket HSF (Heat sink and fan). A nice copper zalman is my suggestion.
