I sugget you start here.

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ing-guide.html

Overclocking is not particularly difficult but it requires some patience. Once you get started, you never stop though. It's a great hobbie and a good way to save some cash. Good luck!

Definitely read through the guide. It's extremely informative. Overclocking is pretty safe as long as you keep your temperates and voltages within the allowable limits for your particular setup. In you case, you would want to keep your CPU at or below 65°C and 1.525 volts. If you do that, you should be in good shape.

Temperatures and volts can be viewed in your BIOS, or by software.
