Bios...go in and raise the FSB 5MHZ at a time and reboot
Watch your RAM speed because it will increase also...went it gets to it's limit you must decrease the speed in MHZ to allow the CPU to be overclocked further.

Read the guides here, great information.

If you get stuck with anything in them, ask a specific question about what stuck you.

Also, you will have to define your definaition of "safe", everyone has a different one, and to properly answer your question we'll need to know what you are expecting. Do you wnat to use this CPU for 3 years? 1 Year? 6 months and throw it away?


Personally, I set my RAM speed and lock it right up front to reasonable level I expect to get to, don't leave it at AUTO and have it raise with the FSB....there's no point.

For a Core 2 Duo system, and with your RAM, I would set it to run at 650Mhz at stock timings and voltage. When you hit 350 FSB you can slowly raise it with the FSB to stay at 1:1 until the RAM maxes out......
