I wouldn't over clock it with the stock heat sink. I remember my Pentium D (820 I believe) ran pretty hot.

Just raise the CPU multiplier and Frequency in your BIOS. The multiplier times the frequency give you the clock speed.

Test your overclock for a few hours with prime95 once you have a high enough clock. If your overclock fails and you get a BSOD, write down the error code and tell us what it is on here.

Just go as far as you can go (raising the core clock by about 200MHz at a time). I remember with my ASUS board, if I over clocked my C2Q more than 200MHz at a time, my PC wouldn't boot up. I, personally, wouldn't go more than 3.4GHz if you will be using the stock heat sink. You can go over 4.0GHz if water cooling.

Hope that helps.
