Not interested in extreme increase, 3.3-3.4Ghz would be perfect! should probably get myself some decent cooling system though.. So far I've noticed you all seem to be using CPU-Z and ATITool or something similar. any suggestions to start me off?
Welcome to OCN and the 6000+ club!
I'd suggest going through the links and stickies on overclocking. Take your time and have fun while doing it.

Most 6000+ I've seen can get to 3.3 easy enough. Getting over that depends on the motherboard. Do you know what chipset it is?
For some reason I had a hard time getting higher than 3.3Ghz. Either a bad chip or a bad mobo. It's crazy to compare what this chip can do and what the new intel chips can OC to. It's actually depressing haha.
