first of all, what kind of motherboard do you have? you should always OC the CPU from BIOS cuz the software for it sucks. Give us some specs about your computer and we'll be glad to help............

Good. Now, you need to check into your BIOS. your BIOS should have special overclocking options. Someone with an ASUS board could help you out better in that regard cuz my board's a Foxconn, but I would also suggest reading through this: it's the guide for intel overclocking. Once you've read through this and tried some things, talk back and I'll help out more

so you want me to check my bios settings and report them back to you here right?

Do that and read the guide to become more familiar with what needs to be done when you overclock

yeah essentially im slowing tweaking clock values, and other values and checking the temps/stability then i repeat the step until i get what i want, or when the hardware reached it's full potential right?

That's right... Basically, I didn't want to touch voltages or OC my RAM, so I made sure my FSB:RAM ratio was so that my RAM was slower than specs when OC'ed, but that just makes it easier. Without touching the vCore, I got it to boot stable @ 2.5 but that's cuz I have a 2.0GHz E2180. Yours can overclock way higher. Try to play around with the settings and bringing the FSB up in small increments and running a stability test until it becomes unstable when OC'ed too high.
