It all depends on what you have for your cooling solutions, are you using after market heat sink or stock, I wouldnt recommend overclocking on a stock cooler. As far as overclocking you want to not really mess with the voltage to much. And make sure you monitor your temps. Im not sure what the safe temps are for the FX series CPU's but when I had a 965 BE it was 62C. If you dont know how to monitor and stress test to make sure youll have a stable overclock then refer to the links below.

Was working fine until my HDD died and I replaced it with an identical HDD.

abcasperr pointed out to the program that monitor and show your temperatures and to prime95 which stress-tests your hardware so you can stress your hardware and see what temperatures are safe for what overclock level . I don't have an FX processor but i found this with a google search:

Now, this is a guide for an ASUS mobo, i dunno what mobo you use but i hope it helps.

Also disabling certain "cores" and overclocking others can give you better results in games than just overclocking all cores, keep in mind. Just google search how to do it

It's tough to help you without knowing your setup, I don't want to recommend a OC to someone who doesn't have a aftermarket cooler, or to someone that doesn't know how to monitor their system and stress test it, and then they go and try and OC and ruin their system. Try to increase your multiplier very little at a time and stress test it for 5-10 minutes an if it stable and the temps are good, keep going until either 1 it becomes unstable or it's just getting to hot.
