Default Re: AMD Black Edition

That stock CPU is already rated at 2.8GHz though out of the box. Adding another 200MHz on top of that is possible. It's not a great OC'er, but you can OC it nonetheless. Maybe with aftermarket cooling, you can get it to 3.1-3.2GHz.

What exactly is a stepping?

A stepping on a CPU is basically like a newer version of the CPU core. These feature updates to address certain problems usually.
