Welcome to ocn! Good job with the pics.... Head to the user cp & fill out the info for your system. It's halfway down the left column. Some folks can't see pics and just look for your "sig rig". & my android doesn't do attachment pics at all...

I had that motherboard and it overclocks pretty easily. I am not too familiar with OC'ing an Intel D processor, but more than likely it is the same as other dual core chips.

The first step is to get to know your BIOS. You need to know the specs of your RAM (what frequency it runs at). If you know that and learn your BIOS, you will be able to adjust the FSB of your CPU (which overclocks your processor, but also affects the frequency of your RAM and other components). There is an option in your BIOS to adjust the RAM frequency, so as you increase the FSB (typically by 5-10 mhz at a time at first), you keep your RAM frequency around the same as it is speced to.

But before you even get there - buy an aftermarket cooler...

Hi queeftastic and welcome to the forum.
as other answers, you need to boot into the bios, usually press del or f1 at startup)
overclocking is about maths.
your cpu has a rated fsb (front side bus) of 800,
you always divide this by 4. so your fsb is 200 and you have a multiplier of 15, so 200mhz x 15 = 3000mhz or 3.0ghz.

i always leave the ram at default timings and speed for now, so it doesnt interfere with the cpu overclock.

raise the fsb (it might say core clock, but it will say 200, thanks for cpu-z pic )
raise it to 220mhz
boot into windows
download realtemp and coretemp (google them)
install and run them
then download intel burn test (ibt) and run it.
have a look in task manager and notice how much free ram is listed.

in ibt set threads to 2 (for 2 cores) and then click on custom ram and enter an amount just below the free amount.
eg. i have 2520mb free ram. so i enter 2500 into the custom ram.
run the test for 5 passes. for now, and then at final speed you want, run for 50 passes
keep an eye on temps (do not let it go over 65.c)

if test runs fine, go back into bios, and change frequency (fsb) to 240 and repeat the tests.
keep doing this in 20mhz steps until windows will not boot. then just go back a step (remove 20 from the fsb) to the last stable frequency,
or
just raise the cpu voltage a couple of levels. it should now boot.
its a balancing act, higher voltages will get you higher fsb, but it will also give you higher temps.


the trick is to do this step by step, and not go to high too quick
get the cpu maxed before increasing the ram speed
