And will my psu be able to handle a overclock?

Yes your psu will. AS for the other components, also they should-
remember, oc only by a margin at first, increase fsb with a slight increase in vcore..
Then, check for stability, prime 95 will do-

now my cpu reach 51 degrees during gaming (3,4 ghz)
Isnt that much considering I have done no OC?
Seems like I need a better cpu fan right? or better airflow in the cabinet.

Ok I understand fsb and vcore, but what about the cpu multiplier? shouldnt I also increase it?

so I must increase vcore, vdim, etc also? not just multiplier?
In my bios I cant recognize where the multiplier is. does it have different name with different bios/MB?

hmmm. I have read about how to overclock. and how to overclok the amd 965. but when I get into bios it seems like its different names for things that I have read about here. cant really seem to find. fsb and multiplier in my bios
