Do you know if screen savers will interrupt or anything like that, and how I can disable them?

Screen savers are off by default.
Right-click Desktop -> Personalize -> lower right-hand corner is Screen savers.

Alright, I'll be back in a week or so when I'm free of time, that's if I need help when I've run into something. :)

OK, I'm a bit confused here: So I've overclocked it 60MHz right now, and the OS has opened, I quickly ran Prime 95 and everything's good, but the CPU voltage setting is set to Auto and whenever I set it to 1.380 volts it goes to something like 1.3801250v. In the bar, it showed if I used that, I'd be setting less power for my CPU. How do I set this?
*Edit* In the BIOS, I found out where my vCore Voltage was, and I just kept adjusting it until it reached it's default 1.380v (At 'High Performance' in Windows) I looked at the CPU Core in AIDA64 says 1.380v. Now, even if I set the power plan to 'High Performance' the voltage does not change. I ran Prime95 again and no BSOD.
As for the CPU temperatures, they've ramped up about 7C, is that normal for something I've overclocked to 2.8GHz from 2.6GHz?
*Second Edit* One of my mates helped me, and now I've got a stable 3.4GHz overclock. I ran Prime95 for an hour without any problems.
