SO I've read, I'm hoping to get around 2.2-2.4Ghz out of it without too much hassle

Go into the BIOS and look through everything and get firmiliar with it... when your done just don't save so for now no changes will be made!
Once you get to know your way around a little you be in the Advanced Section a lot...
Things to know.
HT, Memory Controler and memory voltage
HTT CPU Bus speed which is x10 for your CPU
vcore or CPU voltage... it will need some increase as you OC in the higher speeds.
vdimm, RAM voltage.. you will probably not want to excede 2.8v
RAM timings... a good referance readhttp://www.overclock.net/faqs/26706-ram-timings-dummies.html

As you in up the HTT the RAM's speed will increase. THere are several options to adjust the RAM to keep it stable.
1. Increase the vdimm
2. Loosten the timings
3. Set the RAM to 333 or 266 to under clock it so that it has room to be increased when you up the HTT.. that is called using a divider.
4. The HT has it's own RAM multiplyer which is "5x" default
@ 5 x the HTT or 200 you get 1000MHz and that value changes with the HTT and the default 200 increases so ...
An HTT of 201-250 use a 4x
251-333 use a 3x
That will keep the RAM's HTT betweeen 800-1000MHz to help maintain the RAMS stability.

Some settings that should get you going to a safe OC...
HTT 240
vcore 1.5 to 1.55v
vdim 2.8v
HT 4x
RAM set to 333 ... it you dont post you may need to reset the CMOS and set RAM to 266.
Crashing the system is a part of OCing... just reset the CMOS and try again

OH... disable Cool N Quiet!!!

Oddly enough, Cool N Quiet was disabled already. I'm having a little troube identifying which numbers go where, so I used the built-in option to overclock at 17% (highest) which puts me at 2.33Ghz...
