How do I overlock a AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz

I am brand new to the overclocking community. I'm looking to overclock this AMD CPU. If there is already a sticky-guide to this, I apologize, but a link to it would be nice

So, any help on software, process or overclock recommendations would be nice! Thanks!

Any overclocking is recommended to be done through BIOS, whereas you should have options to change the FSB, multiplier, cpu voltage etc.

You should be able to hit 3.8GHz with around 1.4-1.5v voltage, depending on the chip. And if using the stock HSF, it'd be better to get an aftermarket cooler, such as Corsair H50 or Noctua NH-D14.
