Overclocking a Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo Socket on a GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3 MoBo

I have never overclocked before and I am nervous about damaging my CPU but I want to see what kind of performance I can really get out of this thing as I heard that lots of people have had great result with doing so.
I will be air cooling and I am using a NZXT Phantom case with 7 fans as well as a ZALMAN CNPS11X Extreme aftermarket CPU cooler.



What software would I use to OC this CPU?

Do I have to OC using the bios? Are there any advantages for using the bios to OC oppose to OC'ing through Windows? (I'm running W8.1)

What is the best software to use for testing stability?

Is there a certain speed I should attempt to OC at initially? I would like to be able to get it to at least 4.0GHz.

Might be helpful to know the make and model of your motherboard and memory?
