Overclocking the FM2+ is pretty straightforward. Go into BIOS and add to the cpu multi. Reboot and test monitor your temps and test for stability with something like Prime95. If it passes 20 minutes add another step to the multi and test again. Watch your cpu voltage while it's under load you'll nee this number for manual BIOS voltage setting when things start to fail stability tests. That voltage will give you a starting point. Just keep the CPU below 65C

The 880K is pretty much overclocked out of the box. There isn't too much to squeeze out of it imho. The default vcore is 1.4875.

This. Not going to be much headroom there. And the motherboard may not be able to handle much over stock either.
