I got an AMD A8-3820 QuadCore with 2,50 Ghz and CPU VID 1.3395 V.

I tried to overclock it with AMD Overdrive, setting the multiplier to 15x (3.00 Ghz) and the CPU VID to 1.35.
When I'm playing I can notice the difference, no more lagg!

The max temps are 58°C for the CPU and 65° for the GPU (HWMonitor).
With AI Suite it shows me max 54° CPU.

Now I want to try to overclock my CPU to the max: 18x (3.60Ghz).
But I dont know how much to set the CPU VID, any advice ?

And, is it too risky ? If I keep controlling the temps, and I keep playing with the computer at his max, what could happen ? Do you not reccomended it to me ? Or it's enough, controlling the temps, that are not too high ? (How much is too high :P ?)

(Sorry for my english, Im italian)
(This is my first time in this forum, hope someone could help me!)

I believe the most you can drive the voltage safely is 10% of it's operating voltage. But basically the whole thing with overclocking is just push it until the computer's unstable. Then use the last stable settings.
