Overclocking generates a lot of extra heat; heat which must be dissipated not only for the life of the cpu, but also for the stability of the overclock.

If you're already set on not doing things properly, then I doubt anyone's going to waste their time helping you ruin a perfectly good machine.

Overclocking is a series of trials and errors. No one can tell you exact settings, as each system is different.
Basically all you do is increase the front side bus speed gradually. You don't want to do sudden increases, or you may damage your CPU.
You also need to increase voltages gradually as well, although this is where the trial and error comes into play. What you need to do is leave voltage at stock and gradually increase your fsb until your system either is not stable or won't boot. Then you add a little more voltage, just in little parts.
You also need to watch your ram ratio. Make it set so that your ram is close to it's rated speed. (example: 2x1 gb sticks rated at 400 MHz each should stay at or very close to 800 MHz.)
You should invest in better cooling, but the stock fan might get you to that clock, but be sure to test stability and monitor temperatures as you overclock.

And when you increase your fsb and voltage, increase it in small increments. (example: 5mhz at a time and .5 volts at a time

You will likely need a better cooling solution than stock, if your using the stock Intel HS.
They are just barely adequate for stock speeds.
The stock Heatsinks do not disipate heat very well.
And, YES, Overclocking the CPU does and will make a HUGE difference if you can not get rid of the extra heat effeciently.

Overclocking on a stock heat sink is asking for trouble

Having said that, you may not be able to reach your goal.
It depends what FSB -> DRAM straps you have available.

If the lowest you can set the RAM is 667 (Strap of 333/667 for example) ...
you may not be able to reach 3.0.

This is why:

Your CPU shows as a 1333FSB with x8 Multiplier.
This means 333x8 = 2664mhz (or 2.66Ghz)

To Reach 3.0: (Just for example. Do not plug these values in straight away and hope for the best)

You need to set the FSB to 375 (effective 1500mhz from default 1333)
Cpu speed will then be 375*8= 3.0 ghz
**Keep in mind this is a Raw value for example. Other things must be considered such extra voltage may be needed to run stable here**

-->The problem will be RAM.
At a 1:1 ratio (FSB->DRAM strap 333/667) --
this setting puts your RAM at 750mhz.


Its best to keep the RAM at or below rated speed when Overclocking, or very small OCs at most.
Your RAM itself may simply not be able to handle that kind of speed increase.
Keep in mind, RAM is the easiest piece of hardware to fry.

Also, if you are determined to try anyway, go in small steps.
Do NOT just set it for 3.0 and hope for the best.
Go slow .. Take your time and test for stability at each stage. Also ensure your tempratures are acceptable.

You do not want the CPU above 65C under full Prime load.

I have my old "still working" E6750 to 3.5GHz on air using the stock cooler. I also had it stable at 3.8GHz using a better heatsink. The good thing about the older 65nm cpu's is that they can really take the voltage, up to 1.5 volts Vcore and 72C is considered safe. You should also pay attention to the memory dividers, they can make or break your overclock.

Step by step instructions aren't possible for this, especially when you don't fill out your system specs.....

No, not increments of .5v at a time, that's way too much, that will probably kill your processor instantly; Increments of .025v should be the max.
