Well, there's no special trick, what you need to do:
-Turn off Intel Speedstep/EIST
-Turn off C1E

Then you might want to loosen your RAM timings to make sure that you don't run into instability.

Then start increasing the Front Side Bus by 10MHz intervals, after doing this step multiple times, you might was to try loading Windows to see if it doesn't crash. Just make sure that your vCore never exceeds 1.36v, and since you are on stock cooling, don't expect to break 4GHzm but 3.2GHz should be possible on stock.

The stock hs on the new 45nm duals has half the aluminum without a copper base than compared to the 65's. Should consider an aftermarket hs before attempting an overclock.
