by reading the manual of your motherboard.
Also a 30 year old would stop and think about the questions they ask before they start rambling on about this and that. The clearer your post's are the easier it is for people to help. Also the more info you provide the better for you and the people trying to help.
Now as for running a stability test it is better to test it now then wait for the CPU to die later on, it isnt 100% safe but the only thing that is going to kill your CPU is the voltage being to high. when you overclock, you MUST STRESS THE SYSTEM and when doing so you must utilize 100% of your CPU to get an accurate reading I.E. if you have HT or a Dual core CPU you need to run 2 programs at the same time.
