New to overclocking, so thought I'd give it a whirl. I was wondering if I could get the FX-55 moving faster than 3010.7? Below are some specs. I have been gaming at this speed for about 2 weeks now. The system is very stable at this speed, however like I said I'm new to this. Anybody know how to increase the speed? Any suggetions would be greatly appreciated Especially if I've done something wrong.

Motherboard= A8N32-SLI Deluxe Gaming
AMD FX-55 2.6

FYI This system is water cooled and idles at 28C
