Thanks a lot for the replies.
What words am I supposed to be looking for in the bios? Like weirdo said, "move the cpu speed up".. what setting is responsible for altering cpu speed?
This is mostly where I stumble.. at the technical terminology. I've got a handle on what things do for the most part... but sometimes things aren't immediately clear.
Also, why would I set my ram voltage to 2.1 in order to overclock the CPU? Just curious what that has to do with it.
Ok here's the prognosis:
I set everything as mentioned ... except the memory voltage because the only option was "overvoltage" and I didn't see anything about the current voltage. It just gave options for +.1 +.2 etc.
I rebooted, checked CPUID and it was indeed at 3.6, but within 1 minute my system restarted. While I was in the bios I checked the temperatures before overclocking and I was at 41C.. everything stock. So maybe overclocking with my stock cooler isn't such a good idea after all. 41C seems a little hot for idling.. but my house is really warm too so that's probably a big cause.
Here is my default bios screen:
