New computer, how far ca I overclock the FSB?

Specs: Windows 7, Phenom II 1055T/G.Skill 4GB 1333Mhz
Okay here is my rig.

AMD Phenom II x6 1055T 2.8Ghz (x14 multi by default. 16.5 on turbo)
4GB(2x2GB sticks) of DDR3 1333 PC310600 RAM
GA-880GMA-UD2H Gigaybyte Motherboard

So my FSB is aready at 200Mhz speed

Memory at 1332mhz, PCIe 100mhz
And my phenom CPU is the 125w version(there is apparently a 95w kind)

CPU voltage is 1.424v

no graphics card except onboard ATI Radeon HD 4250

Now for the question. I have a tuner built in with my motherboard. lets me change almost every voltage, frequency, and multiplier that I can thing of.

I was going to raise the multiplier, but AMD would do that at a certian point.
And I hear that raising the FSB frequency would make more of the components faster. Rather then just the CPU.

The problem is stability. There is no big guide to being stable for me, and other tutorials don't seem to fit, they talk about 133mhz bus's or increasing/decreasing voltages.

So how far would be safe to OC my FSB frequency? And if I increased it, what kind of voltage would I need?

PS-I have more then stock cooling. And my system runs ~25C idle, and barely 30-40C on intense(or as intense as I can get it. Even a benchmark didn't do much.)

If you're reading overclock tutorials regarding FSB, you must be reading about Intel CPUs. AMD hasn't used a FSB in many, many years.

Try reading this thread to get an understanding about how AMD systems work:
