Yes i think you will be able to overclock your x6 just hoping you have a very good psu: 80+ bronze ore more which delivers at least 500w... the 1st step will be to reach 3,6ghz (18x200) @ 1,35v or 1,375v  ;)

Thanks for feedback!

My PSU should be fine, i got: XFX black edition 750W but thanks for the heads up.

If i make it to 3,6 will i notice any performance boost and FPS increase (example: Battlefield 4)?

You're welcome... so good for your psu is it 80+ bronze ore more ? otherwise even at 3,8-3,9 ghz i think you couldn't be able to notice any changes (through naked eyes) through any games except enabling the fraps soft which allows you to see at he fly the fps (5 fps more at 3,9-4,0 ghz)... in fact overclocking makes difference when the frequency is very high (at least +25-30% added to stock speed) and through particular programs like zip, encoders, movies/photos makers, games and of course benchmarks... but above all overclocking is for fun and psychological for certain persons

No problemo for your rig just set as following: 20x200 @ 1,375v or 1,40v cool and quiet on but turbocore off, set your memory on auto (timings and frequency), pci frequency at 100mhz and that's all !  8) ;D
