I dont have that board but have some patience , got the book for your board, you should start by reading it and seeing how you access the bios and advanced features, Like memory features, manually adjusting voltages, for example

you want to start by rebooting and going into your bios. get familiar with the different settings. the first thing is to increase - slightly - the fsb (front side bus) setting. once you've done this, you can move on to more advanced things. you should search the forums here and read up on overclocking. its not something someone can explain in one or two posts. you need to read, experiment, and ask questions. hang around. you're in the right place.

it depends on how stable your system is after raising them. the trick is to tweak them up a bit and check the stability. then repeat if stable. a program called prime95 is a great tool to check stability.
