You may be able to use ClockGen, it depends on if the PLL on the board is supported. You will have to pull off the side panel and find the PLL chip on the board and write down the numbers then check ClockGen for that model.
I use ClockGen on one of my folding rigs as it is using an old "value" motherboard with no overclocking options, it's a nice program, but has several quirks and is not the best way to overclock. I have gotten my 2.4 Northwood to 3Ghz with it however, it goes unstable at 3.05.
If Clockgen supports that board's PLL then you could use it until you can afford a new motherboard, however, if it does not a new motherboard is your only chance.
I don't think you will get far either way with the stock cooler though, you are going to want to keep the CPU under 55c when overclocked, that will be hard for the stock cooler. Which brings up another question, does that motherboard even support temp monitoring? If not, I would certainly not recomend overclocking it with no way to know the temps.
