More than likely your friend just got a poor chip, it happens (i should know) Still, 2.8 ghz is plenty fast I would advice dropping the voltage a little, I've heard northwoods can crap out at 1.7 and above, 2 volts gives me the jitters on an AMD system and they are known to toletate voltage pretty well!

Oh, What PSU are you running? that may be limiting the overclock rather than the chip being at its limit.
