Default What can i expect out of a Phenom 2 720?

First of all, this isn't for a dedicated folding rig, I only plan to leave it on when i'm watching videos surfing etc. (3-4 hrs a day tops)

Currently I have it overclocked to 3.2ghz on stock cooler but it was only getting 2k ppd using the notfred method. And i never finish the 1920p units on time :(

Other things I've tried:
- windows smp, 350 ppd lol, but at least its got like a 20days deadline
- setting up vmserver + ubuntu, results were very similar to notfred method, never finished on time

So i plan to pick up a cpu cooler during boxing week and overclock it to 3.4~3.6GHz with 4 cores would I be able to boost the ppd enough so i can finish a linux smp wu in 3 days?

thanks
