My System Specs

Default

I got it up to 3.7 on a slightly smaller cooler than yours, so 3.8 shouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for you.
See this thread for more overclocking information r.e. the 965

I'm currently running FSB of 200.68 and multiplier of 18.5, with a Vcore of 1.5, and it's 24/7 stable @ 58/59C.

Another member posted that AMD CPUs like to be OC'd with a higher FSB and lower multiplier, so I want to find time later this week to play around and see if I can get a better OC.

As to your second question, the 945 doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, so overclocking it is a little more involved. Also, since it has a lower TDP, I'm not sure how high you could realistically take it.
