If you are reading the actual core frequency correctly, it already is
overclocked to FX55 level. The stock frequency for this processor is 2.4
Ghz.  The temps are fine, low even, if accurate.  I have a San Diego core
4000+ and run it at 2.7 Ghz at standard voltage with a large silent Zalman
cooler which is FX57 speed. My idle temps are 49C and 50-55 under max load.
Ambient room is 23. This system has run 24/7 at these clocks since I put it
together 19 months ago.

    It's a good idea to check the thermal specs for your cpu at

(use one of the cpu identification utilities with your processor serial
number to identify the exact model), and stay a healthy margin below the Max
Case Temp listed for it.  So if it says, say, 65C Max, never go over 60C.
